Interview S. Seshan - Enter the WaterVerse: EU collaboration to unlock water data sharing
“A new collaboration uniting 10 countries across the EU is helping to make data more interoperable to connect water stakeholders for improved decision making. Called the WATERVERSE, the project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe programme with the aim to develop a Water Data Management Ecosystem (WDME).
One of the ambitions is to make water sector data management practices and resources more accessible, affordable, secure, fair and easy to use. A three-year project will be demonstrated across six countries, including Cyprus, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Finland and the UK.
WATERVERSE connects 17 partners across 10 European countries, including research organisations, water service companies and technology providers.”
