InnoSuccess, consulting company based in Brussels, is led by Andrea Rubini (Italian national who is an experienced Water Resource Engineer with long term practice in WASH projects in Africa and Asia) and provides its clients with specialized training, advices and support on Eu policies, research, innovation, development and management for the water sector and all connected areas  (manufacturing, agriculture and energy). 

 

 

 

InnoSuccess works tightly with the WssTP (Water supply sanitation Technology Platform), which is the recognized voice and promotor of water-related research and innovation in Europe and acknowledged by the European Commission as industry-led European Technology Platform for the Water.

 

 

In charge of the scientific and policy sector for the WssTP, InnoSuccess supports the European Commission into the development and implementation of innovative water policies in Europe, and acts as mediator between institutions and private companies, utilities, universities, and research canters to trigger development and growth in water management and water governance.

 

InnoSuccess also co-chairs the Water JPI Advisory Board, to tackle the ambitious grand challenge of achieving sustainable water systems for a sustainable global economy, and to boost water resource management in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

 

Moreover, InnoSuccess actively collaborate with the key actors of water related sectors and participates (by delivering presentations about specific topics related to water) to the main global events concerning water, such as the conferences organised by the International Water Association (IWA), the European Innovation Partnership for Water (EIP WATER), or the Office International de l’Eau (OIEau), and collaborates with renowned Universities, Research centres, and Technology Transfer Organisations. 

 

 

Running projects

 

For the WssTP, InnoSuccess collaborates in the implementation of the following running projects:

 

 

IC4WATER

IC4WATER plans to elaborate new principles of international transnational research and innovation cooperation through concrete joint programming. It  in particular focuses on the theme of UN Sustainable Development Goals related to Water challenges: Water is at stake not only in Goal 6 to “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”, divided into seven specific targets, but in almost all of the 17 SDGs.

 

 

AfriAlliance

AfriAlliance supports the existing networks in identifying appropriate social innovation and technological solutions for key water and climate change challenges. It will capitalise on the knowledge and innovation base and potential in Africa and in the EU. The project will support effective means of knowledge sharing and technology transfer within Africa and between Africa and the EU, all with the aim of increasing African preparedness to address the vulnerability of water and climate change-related challenges.

 

STOP-IT

Within the STOP-IT project, prevention, detection, response and mitigation of relevant risks at strategic, tactical and operational levels of planning in water-critical infrastructures will be taken into account, in order to generate modular solutions (technologies, tools and guidelines) and an integrated software Platform.

 

SIM4NEXUS

Water, land, food, energy, and climate are interconnected, comprising a coherent system (the ‘Nexus’), dominated by complexity and feedback. Putting pressure on one part of the Nexus can create pressures on the others. Management of the Nexus is critical to securing the efficient use of our scarce resources. Through the five nexus themes, SIM4NEXUS aims to predict society-wide impacts of resource use and relevant policies on sectors such as agriculture, water, biodiversity and ecosystem services through a model-based analysis.

 

ENERGYWATER

The EnergyWater project aims to provide support to European manufacturing industries by enabling energy efficient water processing, through the development of the Energy Management Self-Assessment (EMSA)-web tool and the creation of an Energy Angels Network.
