The fourth WaterD2D newsletter is out!
WaterD2D’s mission focuses on creating spaces for collaboration between scientists, policymakers, and stakeholders from various sectors to discuss the diverse facets of water security. This newsletter covers updates from the WaterD2D’s Science-Practice Dialogue Workshop that took place in August 2022 and other events.
The WaterD2D’s second capacity-building workshop titled:
“Research Proposal Writing”
As part of the capacity-building activities of the WaterD2D project, the Technical University of Munich and the Bayerische Forschungsallianz jointly delivered a capacity-building workshop titled: “Research Proposal Writing” for the Jordanian partners represented by The Inter-Islamic Network on Water Resources Development and Management – INWRDAM’s staff. Moreover, the workshop was supported by WaterD2D’s partners from TH Köln and FU Berlin.
On Monday, 16th of May, the INWRDAM staff participated in a 4-hour workshop consisting of three main sessions. Where the first session offered an introduction to European funding schemes and the eligibility of Jordan as a country for applications, while the second session focused on how to read funding calls and identify the formal requirements? And finally, the third session involved applied work to analyze the PRIMA initiative funding call.
Mr. Sebastian Kägler, a Scientific Officer in the Environment, Energy & Bioeconomy department at the Bavarian Research Alliance, delivered the workshop and facilitated the discussion and Q&A sessions.
WaterD2D’s first capacity-building workshop titled:
“Crossing Paths: Research and Innovation”
This workshop will highlight the crossing paths between Research and Innovation in Germany and find the best channels to replicate these success stories in Jordan.

New Publication Alert!
The WaterD2D project aims to contribute significantly to a new model of research-based innovation to realize water security in Jordan. This novel methodology seeks to link governments and researchers to enhance “research production” by inspiring researchers to target the governmental strategy’s goals with interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches and governments to turn their strategies into living documents by feeding them demand-driven research.
Online course on hydrogeology; 12th – 23rd of September
A two week online course on hydrogeology will be conducted at German Jordan University in September 2021. The first week of the course starts on the 12th of September and covers basic topics like Water Balance; Groundwater Dynamics; and Hydro Geochemistry. In the second week, 19th until 23rd of September, the focus is on Environmental Hydrogeology, Managed Aquifer Recharge and Wellfield Construction. In the mornings a lecture will be given by professors and researchers from Freie Universität Berlin and Technische Universität München. During the afternoon, practices will help to deepen the understanding of the covered topics during tutorials. Interested students from TH Köln and TU München are invited to join the course.
