ENVISION end-user workshop on “Real-time monitoring of Floods in Trans-boundary Context“

The final ENVISION end-user workshop was held in Bucharest, Romania during November 13-14, 2012. The workshop focused on the developed ENVISION technologies (with exemplifications from the “Real-time Monitoring of Floods Evolution in Trans-boundary Context” pilot case) and had the following goals:

  • Introduce the pilot case on real-time monitoring of floods evolutions in a trans-boundary context
  • Present/demo the ENVISION platform and technologies and their use in the pilot case
  • Collect feedback, comments, and remarks from experts and potential end-users
  • Identify possibilities for use of the ENVISION platform in other use cases/domains

The registered number of participants at the workshop was 51 (the list of registered participants is available here). The workshop was organized around presentations from the ENVISION consortium and participating organizations, demos and discussions. The agenda and presentations are provided as follows.
