Sustainability and sustainable development of energy, water and environment systems are the ultimate goals of the societies that care about their own future. To reach these goals it will not be enough to apply new technologies and process but it will seek for a wider approach to the integrated system planning and to large scale cooperation between different stakeholders. The knowledge transfer is one of the important pillars of transforming the current system to the more sustainable one. The paper describes results of networking achieved within recently started JoRIEW project that will have significant impact on Jordanian national policy in terms of water management, renewable energy sources and energy saving. The objective of the JoRIEW project is to reinforce the cooperation capacities of Jordanian research centres by promoting closer scientific collaboration with a number of European located research centres and universities. The project will help to structure and enhance S&T cooperation in areas of common interest, such us system integration, integrated energy and water planning, development of water supply systems that can be powered by intermittent renewable energies, in particular flexible pumping techniques and reverse osmosis desalination technology, where joint research efforts could bring common solutions and mutual benefits. Improving Jordanian capacities in research will be achieved through following activities that are in detailed presented in the paper: Networking of Jordanian and EU research centres in view of disseminating scientific information, identifying partners and setting up joint research Developing training modules to build competency and facilitate the Jordanian participation in FP7 projects regarding energy and water research Developing the Jordanian research strategy for sustainable and renewable energy and water desalination in order to increase its scope, in particular its regional coverage and to improve its responses to the socio-economic needs of Jordan and other countries in the region.
