SKINT Final Conference
The final conference of the SKINT project aims to present the project findings and its quantitative and qualitative achievements, along with related application examples of sustainable water management. To this purpose, experts from different countries in the North Sea Region will discuss the implementation of solutions in the field of sustainable urban drainage systems, sustainability and the training of prospective water managers. A complementary exhibition of the accomplishments of the project will showcase publications, the SKINT online portal and Water Town, a computer game.
The event will help to disseminate the findings and inform water managers about the latest solutions and ideas. Furthermore, the SKINT final conference also aims to offer networking opportunities between local authorities, universities, companies and the interested public.
