Dear readers,

welcome to the third issue of the PIANO newsletter. The project is now halfway and a first balance of the project activities was presented through the technical report due to the European Commission by the end of September 2016. Activities carried out in work package 1 have produced contacts with 38  international water-related networks and exchanges of information through the PIANO accounts on social networks. Communication and dissemination on the project aims and expected results were performed during a long list of events, workshops and conferences held in Europe and in China with a focus on water innovation. The first draft of a database collecting information on cooperation projects between Europe and China in the water sector will be implemented in the next months. An inventory of innovative water solutions for the PIANO research domains was completed by WP 2 and details are provided in the following text.

More information on these activities is provided in this newsletter.
