Space-O Project consortium

Workshop on using Earth Observation information in water management

Vienna, Austria // 06 December 2018

Starting in 2016, an international team of experts from EMVIS Consultant Engineers, Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI), EOMAP, European Dynamics, Consiglio Nazionale Delle Ricerche (CNR), and the International Water Association (IWA) joined together to harness technology and tackle drinking water challenges through the SPACE-O project. The tools developed were tested in two pilot sites through the local utilities of Crete and Sardinia (Organization for the Development of Crete S.A., and Ente Acque della Sardegna). We have involved end users (water utilities) from the initiation of this project to ensure that our products are relevant tools to their operations. However, many other water quality dependent activities from recreation to aquaculture to hydropower can benefit as well.

The purpose of this event is to 1) present SPACE-O final outcomes including a water information and early warning system using Earth Observation data to provide information such as water quality forecasting (on reservoir source; and a risk-based decision support system (DSS) to enable cost-effective and environmental sustainable operation of Water Treatment Plants (WTP); and, 2) identify future opportunities for using advanced technologies to improve water management.

The workshop will be held in parallel with the ICT 2018 Conference.

Limited funds are available to cover attendee’s travel expenses, on a “first-come, first-serve” basis. If you wish to request funding support, please fill out and follow the instructions in this form. We will return to you confirming the amount and/or items to be reimbursed.

In order to plan our event, we kindly ask your response the latest by November 5th, 2018.
