The European Innovation Partnership on Water (EIP Water) is an initiative that aims at facilitating the development of solutions to water challenges. With this objective in mind, a series of Action Groups have been created.

The Action Group FinnoWater seeks to implement innovative financial instruments and mechanisms to support both the public and the private sector in water innovation. Thus, this Action Group intends to explore, develop and implement new approaches to increase financial flows in the water and water-related sectors, particularly by incentivising public innovation.
