Dissimination of research results to the water community in Europe and beyond

From 11.09 to 15.09.2022, the IWA organizes in Copenhagenm the World Water Congress & Exhibition. This event will engage stakeholders and key contacts within the conventional water sector and beyond.

It will bring together core water sector groups, such as those focused on urban water and urban water services, as well as participants from industry and agriculture, architects and urban planners, soil and groundwater experts and hydrologists, social scientists, the ICT sector, the financial sector, and others.

 

The European Water Association will contribute with a Workshop on “Dissemination of research results to the water community in Europe and beyond”.

To achieve the challenging goals of the water sector, our research community is carrying out intensive and comprehensive R&D. However, our task is not complete until these innovations are implemented in practice. Notably, the water sector is quite slow on innovation uptakes compared with most other sectors. The objective of this workshop is to (a) identify the bottlenecks in the innovation uptake process, (b) share experience on tools, incentives and processes, practices and (c) develop guidelines of good practices accelerating the innovation uptake. The proposed session will elaborate on the challenges and opportunities, with convincing examples of success stories, and agree on The Way Forward. We will also discuss the importance and role of the involvement of national and international associations such as EWA and IWA for accelerating the innovation uptake.

 

Our workshop will take place on Monday 12th September from 15:45 – 17:15.

The full program will be available soon.
