LIS-Water is a non-profit centre of excellence under construction focused on public policies, regulation and management on water services and related water resources. LIS-Water intends to make a pivotal contribution for better water services and a better society. It responds to the challenges deriving from water being one of the top world priorities, recognised by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. LIS-Water is an initiative promoted by the National Laboratory for Civil Engineering with an effective partnership with many internationally recognised Portuguese, non-Portuguese and international organisations. LIS-Water was approved on March 2017 by the European Commission for funding through the Teaming Programme H2020.
