This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programm under grant agreement No 641821.
The SmartH2O Summer School on Smart Systems for Urban Water Demand Management has been launched and is now open for registration (http://www2.idsia.ch/cms/smartwater/)! The school and the associated conference will be held on August 22-25 at Monte Verità, Switzerland, with a spectacular view on Lake Maggiore.
The school will focus on managing household water demand using ICT and smart economics: from monitoring consumption with innovative smart meters, to profiling users’ behaviour, to understanding how different stimuli can nudge behavioural change, and, finally, how integrated ICT solutions can be adopted by water utilities. The conference is particularly aimed at young researchers and PhD students willing to focus their work on solving compelling real world problems with relevant impact on the society, by bringing in innovative ideas.
WaterInnEU will have representation at EGU also this year. The RiBaSE Interoperability Experiment will be presented.
Sponsored by the European Commission and the Congressi Stefano Franscini (ETH Zurich) and organised by ICT4Water in the scope of the SmartH2O project, the Symposium and Summer School aims at exploring the perspective of urban water demand management for the next years.
The Symposium will have particular attention on modelling and understanding the behaviour of water consumers, the drivers of such behaviour, the role of social norms, economic leverages and water demand management strategies to promote behavioural change, and the role of Information and Communication Technologies to support the design, implementation and deliver smart solutions for urban water demand management.
The venue will be at Monte Verità – Switzerland (venue of choice of Congressi StefanoFranscini Conferences) during 21-25th August 2016.
WaterInnEU is member of the ICT4Water cluster.
Are you interested in new innovations to support River Basin Management?
Join the Marketplace E-Pitch Event – November 2nd 2016
The WaterInnEU Marketplace (to be launched at the end of October) is a match making hub that has been established to accelerate the market translation of products and services of specific relevance to River Basin Management. The Marketplace directly supports innovations from across Europe that have been previously funded by the EU, but have yet to achieve market adoption. Its role is to raise awareness amongst River Basin Managers, their supply chains and stakeholders regarding the availability of potentially relevant new products, and to facilitate introductions with their owners. The available products include a combination of commercially available products and services, developers seeking collaborators for market deployment, and open source models.
Are you interested in new innovations and would like to hear from the product owners themselves? Then join the next Marketplace E-Pitch Event on November 2nd 2016 at 14h CET. In a 1 hour session, short presentations will be made by a first cohort of product developers from our platform in a web based event which gives you the opportunity to ask questions and receive answers directly from the product developers themselves:
If you would like to attend, please register now to secure your place through the WaterInnEU E-pitch registration form, and feel free to distribute this invitation amongst your colleagues.
WaterInnEU will explain its markeplace in the special session at the European Utility Week 2016, November 17th, Barcelona. This event is promoted by the ICT4Water cluster.
WssTP Brokerage & WGs event is a chance for people to discuss, exchange innovative ideas and meet potential partners to create new or strengthen existing consortia. WaterInnEU presents its marketplace concept and platform.
WaterInnEU information materials will be displayed at GWP booth during Water Expo at the Budapest Water Summit on 28-30 November 2016.
The European Innovation Partnership announces that the 4th EIP Water conference is to be held in Porto, Portugal in September of 2017. This annual conference brings together policymakers, national and local government, operators, scientists, researchers, technology companies, financiers, start-ups, SMEs, utilities, city planners, industrial producers, journalists and EU institutions at the European, national and regional level to break down the barriers to innovation in the sector.
Are you interested in new innovations and would like to hear from the product owners themselves? Then join the next 2nd Marketplace E-Pitch Event on February 7th 2017 at 14h CET. In a 1 hour session, short presentations will be made by product developers who have newly joined the WaterInnEU platform in a web based event which gives you the opportunity to ask questions and receive answers directly from the product developers themselves: CORES-A1, REFRAN-CV , DPR 25 & DPR 60 and Electrodenitrification technology, HYK.
