WISDOM Final Event, Cardiff (UK), January 19, 2017

The WISDOM project has developed and tested an intelligent ICT system that enables “just in time” actuation and monitoring of the water value chain from water abstraction to discharge, in order to optimise the management of water resources.
The goals of the project were to (a) increase user awareness and modify behaviours concerning the use of water, (b) achieve quantifiable and significant reduction of water consumption, (c) achieve peak-period reduction of water and energy distribution loads and (d) improved resource efficiency and business operations of water utilities due to ICT.
 
The WISDOM project is concluding in January 2017 and we will be holding the project's final event on the 19th January 2017 in Cardiff. Our final event is a key opportunity to find out more about the leading research that has been conducted in WISDOM and see our results first hand. This event will combine technical presentations from invited speakers from the EU ICT4Water Cluster along with live demonstrations and stakeholder workshops.
Participation is free of charge.
 
More information on the project and on the event and registration is available at the event website or at wisdom-project.eu

Ict4water Roadmap 2016

The ICT for Water Management roadmap describes the main gaps and challenges that need to be addressed in the future of the ICT for water management sector, including water providers,customers and policy makers. The first roadmap was published in 2015 and after consulting the ict4water cluster members and other stakeholders an update has been prepared by the European Commission in August 2016. This latest edition of the roadmap will be presented at the Water Ideas conference to be held in Bologna (20-21 October) and can already be downloaded here or at the website of the European Commission https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/news/emerging-topics-and-technology-roadmap-ict-water-management-august-2016

About the Cluster

Due to growing population and economy, seasonal climatic conditions have changed, including extreme events as floods and droughts. This affects as a whole the availability of water resources at world level. ICT and water efficiency is a key policy issue with potential for new research area that includes decision supporting system for the measurement of water quality and quantity including the recycling and water reuse processes. This necessitates increased interoperability between water information systems at EU and national levels and efficiency of water resources management. This site is a hub for the 15 sister projects on ICT and Water Management. Read more.
