Interview S. Seshan - E.U. project to demonstrate international data sharing in water sector
“A new collaboration uniting 10 countries across the European Union 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 program with the aim to develop a Water Data Management Ecosystem (WDME).
“We want to prepare data in a standardized and interoperable way where we can ensure it is ready to be used for certain advanced applications using artificial intelligence,” says Siddharth Seshan, Scientific Researcher at KWR Water Research Institute, one of the project partners. “We can enhance the decision making for end-users. There is already a lot of answers available in the data — we need to find a way to connect the dots already with links.””
