Water4All partnerships funded by the European Union include 79 partners from 31 different countries, bringing together problem owners and solution providers and fostering water innovation in water management and planning, restoration, conservation and best practises in the use of valuable ground-and surface water resources. The Water4All networking event gathered together WOLL representatives from different parts of Finland and international guests, including commercial operators, researchers, NGO and advocacy group representatives, funders and public organizations. Our Freshwater Competence Centre partner organisations Aalto University, University of Oulu and University of Turku participated in the event organised by Finnish Environment Institute.
Freshwater Competence Centre experts participated in the Geoforum Summit 2023, with theme Digital Twins. Harri Kaartinen from Finnish Geospatial Research Institute and Anna-Kaisa Ronkanen from Finnish Environment Institute gave talks at the event, and it was possible to ask questions and discuss about the digital twins of watersheds at the National Land Survey of Finland stand.
The Tulanet Infrastructure day was organised on Thursday 2.11.2023 and the representatives from our research institute partners Finnish Environment Institute and Finnish Geospatial Research Institute set up a “water corner” at the event, to present the international, national and local water infrastructures they are involved with. At the stand the guests could get to know the laser scanners from FGI, that can collect point cloud data above and below the water surface as well as water sampling UAV from SYKE. We also had an international guest, Tejshree Tiwari from the Swedish university SLU, presenting the water-related research infrastructure SITES & supersite Krycklan in Sweden.
If you would like to get to know our infrastructures better, please register now and join us on 11th December at the Cutting edge hydrologic research Infrastructures webinar, organised by Freshwater Competence Centre and EurAqua!
The Freshwater Competence Centre participation to the events was partly funded by Academy of Finland and the European Union – NextGenerationEU projects Green-Digi-Basin and Hydro-RI Infrastructure.
