Metrology for water systems - Webinar

9 May 2022, 9-11 am (Paris) / 5-7pm (Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne)

The event is in French and English with simultaneous translation

This webinar focuses on the metrology for water systems and aims to share knowledge and experience between France and Australia. It will present original on-going activities relevant to anyone working with water systems: student, researcher, or practitioner. It is an opportunity for French or Australian researchers, companies or utilities to learn and connect, as the different partners share the same ambition: to link researchers and practitioners. This specific webinar is targeting French-Australian collaboration but is also open to anyone interested in the subject.

The webinar is divided into two short parts: the first part presents innovative and original monitoring systems dedicated to water management such as wetlands, rivers, water sensitive urban design or sewer. The second part proposes three different experiences of the use of drones for water systems.
