Co-UDlabs at Carrefour des gestions locales de l’eau 2022

The Graie participated in the Carrefour des Gestions Locales de l’Eau organised by Ideal’Co from 29 to 30 June 2022 at the Parc des Expositions in Rennes (35).

The Carrefour des Gestions Locales de l’Eau has brought together 450 exhibitors and 130 conferences, with over 10,000 participants, both in person and digitally.

In that frame, Graie has presented the Co-UDLabs project and its objective to bring together 7 research infrastructures in urban hydrology and their scientists, at the forefront of research at the European level, in order to better meet the needs of practitioners and legislators.

On Wednesday 29 June 2022 from 5 to 6 pm, a collaborative time was proposed by Graie in person on the following theme: “Strengthening the links between scientists and practitioners to accelerate the transition to smart and sustainable urban stormwater management and presentation of the Co-UDLabs project”.

Afterwards, there was an open discussion with the participants on the following questions:

  • What competencies and what research and training activities are offered by the EIG?
  • What are your needs today in terms of knowledge, research, technologies, and training to improve urban stormwater management?

Finally, Elodie BRELOT answered an interview for the french magazine “Actu environnement” during this event. Watch the replay of the interview below (french version).
