    The Nexus Project Cluster is an initiative that aims to enhance communication, dissemination, and the impact of research and initiatives on the Nexus, which links the fields of water, energy, food, land, and climate. The initiative, in particular, investigates the Nexus regarding its impacts on societal challenges like public health, rural-urban development, circular economy, and increasing social welfare.

    The activities of the Cluster focus on improving mutual learning regarding policy coherence and synergies, as well as knowledge sharing through the exchange of methodologies, approaches, tools, and data sets. There is an added value in aligning our research outcomes and jointly launching policy awareness-raising activities.

    The Cluster was initiated in March 2018 by SIM4NEXUS, DAFNE, and the United Nations University (UNU-FLORES). It is open to other projects and initiatives and will initially run until 2020. In 2018 we plan to host a summer school and a policy workshop in Brussels and initiate a state-of-the-art publication on the Nexus (paper/book).

    If you are interested in joining or participating in the activities, please contact Dr Floor Brouwer (SIM4NEXUS Coordinator,
