The need for a sustainable science–policy interface in support of water policies was discussed for some years within the framework of the common implementation strategy (CIS) of the water framework directive (WFD) and related RTD projects. In this context a dedicated science–policy interface ad hoc activity (CIS-SPI) was established by the European water directors for the period 2010–12. This activity has been jointly led by the European Commission (DG Research and innovation) and France (ONEMA — French National Agency for Water and Aquatic Environments). CIS-SPI established close working relationships among research projects and WFD implementers, and has achieved three main tasks: inventory of research and implementation needs from CIS groups; identification of available research and research gaps; and improvement of transfer and usability of research outputs. Over its mandate CIS-SPI achieved consistent results regarding these three tasks which are extensively covered in this report.
