NP027  European Topic Centre on Water Receiving Water Quality
The European Topic Centre on Inland Waters, was one of 9 "Centres of Excellence" contracted to work for the European Environment Agency since 1994.

A recent Agency review led to a change in the numbers and work plans of its Topic Centres. Now there are five, covering: Air and Climate Change, Nature Protection and Biodiversity, Waste and Materials Flows, Terrestrial Environment, and Water (fresh and marine).

The Water Topic Centre is led by WRc with partner organisations from Austria, Denmark, France, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Spain and Poland. The main task of the Topic Centre is to extend its EUROWATERNET network for data and information gathering in support of European policy assessment.

The Agency has recently welcomed the accession countries as new members and has made agreements with the Russian Federation and the Newly Independent States to include them as de facto members. This means that the operational territory extends from Portugal to Kyrgyzstan (west to east) and from the arctic circle to Malta.

The Topic Centre is co-ordinated by an international Core Team in the UK with national experts from France and Spain. The sponsor for the Topic Centre is the European Commission via the European Environment Agency and the contract runs for 3 years.
