POWER H2020 Industry Panel – A digital and social approach to local water issues

Many ICT services are being developed to tackle social challenges but their deployment is hampered by the fact that both social and economic actors are often reluctant to adapt to new implementation tools, institutional arrangements and regulations. Broad-based innovation is required to overcome resistance to new approaches. POWER Water Community Platforms provide a tool to support this vital engagement. During the POWER H2020 Industry Panel we will be discussing opportunities of use for participants and receive feedback on usage of the platforms.

During the event, participants will be able to join the POWER project and become active members of the community and contribute to a direct participatory process. The sharing of knowledge, opinions, and best practices about different local issues will be facilitated and social innovation by the ‘network effect’ will be reached. We will bring together researchers from diverse backgrounds to share their views on the digital platforms in an open dialogue and we will identify strengths and barriers of this approach.

The panel will be organised in 5 sessions of 30 minutes where POWER researchers and experts from other fields will be invited to discuss different topics. Questions from the audience will be nurtured as well as discussion through the DSPs.
