LOCATION

DESCRIPTION

The workshop, organised by Water Europe intends to highlight in the OLLD 2022, building on the workshop implemented at the OLLD 2019, how the Water-Oriented Living Labs (WOLLs) can generate the ideal multi-contextual, empirical real-world environments and the systemic innovation approach. The achievement of a Water-Smart Society is basic to support the twin effort of the EU Green and Digital transition, for ensuring to the next generations a sustainable, inclusive, and prosperous future. 

The Workshop aims at introducing practical and provisional guidelines for the identification, assessment, evaluation of and engagement with Water Oriented Living Labs for those who want to foster and implement Water-Smart innovations by means of the WOLLs eco-systems. 

The workshop will also exploit and show the practical experience which is being gained by EU R&I (Horizon 2020) funded Projects of the CIRSEAU Alliance on WOLLs, and the planned actions of the EU co-funded Partnership Water4All to demonstrate and scale-up water innovation through the Water Oriented Living Labs.
