The event was co-hosted by the Jordan Valley Authority, the University of Jordan, the Jordan University of Science and Technology along with MEDRC.

MEDRC Water Research, in cooperation with the Jordan Valley Authority. has extended its Water Researcher Network to include the Princess Sumaya University and the German Jordanian University. Researchers in the field of water management, water reuse, desalination and waste water, can apply to the upcoming launch of the MEDRC Water Research Fellowship Program in 2017.

MEDRC Water Research Fellows in Jordan and Palestine work on research projects the focus on the crucial water issues facing their countries today.

Since the program started over 170 research projects have been supported. These have made a significant practical impact in the field of water management, reuse, desalination and other pressing topics related to water research in the region.
