On October 19-20 we kicked off our project SOSwater at the IIASA (International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis) premises.

Coordinated by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and together with experienced partners from all over Europe (Utrecht University, Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), Politecnico di Milano, Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V., FutureWater, Aalborg University and many more), SOSwater aims to go beyond state-of-the-art water system modelling toward a holistic and participatory assessment framework that includes data gathering, integrated modelling, and working with relevant stakeholders. The results of SOSwater will help improving the understanding of water resources availability and streamline water planning and management at local to regional levels and beyond, such that the allocation of water among societies, economies, and ecosystems will be economically efficient, socially fair, and resilient to shocks.

We are so excited to have started our collaboration on the SOS-Water project with such a great group of experienced, nice and enthusiastic people!
