Present at ‘Water Science for Impact’
Wageningen University & Research will host the first international conference ‘Water Science for Impact’ on 16 to 18 October, where our researchers Barbara Dal Bo Zanon from Blue21 and Rui de Lima from INDYMO will present their findings.
#1 Urban metabolism
Barbara will present her research on “Evaluation of Floating Developments to Reduce Vulnerability and Land Scarcity in Coastal Delta Cities,” in which she found that combined floating urban and productive functions – like food and biofuel production – can improve the urban metabolism substantially.
#2 Underwater drones
Rui will present his insights on the “Receptivity of Water Managers towards Underwater Unmanned Technology”, on how remote controlled underwater drones help to monitor water quality accurately and extensively, yet in an easier and less expensive way. And on how drones combined with lasers could estimate the size of fish, sediments and plants or collect water samples.
