The CAPSELLA partners SSSA and Zephyr have been invited to present the project’s platform at the upcoming FREEWAT national workshop.
Taking place at the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna premises on July the 12th 2017, this event is a key opportunity for CAPSELLA to reach a new community composed of water management experts, ICT water solutions developers, river basin authorities and citizens concerned about water scarcity crisis and its negative impact in agricolture.
The workshops will focus on water management and a careful planning of the use of water resources in order to present a series of interventions to be put in place to avoid water shortages and crisis/emergencies. Specifically, the workshop will present the added value of the recently launched open source FREEWAT platform, developed and delivered by the FREEWAT consortium within the H2020 FREEWAT project (www.freewat.eu) through the presentation of some FREEWAT case studies.
Invited speakers, with different backgrounds (researchers, river basin authorities, stakeholders from Italy and beyond) will present and share their working experience in order to provide potential solutions to solve the challenges brought forward by the audience.
The workshop is organised in the context of the European Innovation Partnerships on Water (EIP WATER www.eip-water.eu) – Action Groups “Managed Aquifer Recharge Strategies and Actions” and “Water & Irrigated agriculture Resilient Europe”.
