Four new Finnish Flagships have been selected to the Research Council of Finland’s Finnish Flagship Programme, one of which is Digital Waters coordinated by the University of Oulu. Flagship Programme supports high-quality research and increases the economic and societal impact emerging from the research.
“Solutions driven by the Digital Waters flagship are urgently needed, because water is a critical natural resource which is difficult to manage and where digital solutions are rapidly needed” — Professor Björn Klöve, Director of the flagship at the University of Oulu.
The partner organisations of the Digital Waters (DIWA) flagship are the FWCC partners University of Oulu, University of Turku, Aalto University, Finnish Environment Institute SYKE, Finnish Geospatial Research Institute FGI. One more organisation completes the DIWA consortium – Finnish Meteorological Institute.
