The results of ENORASIS final conference (November 27th 2014, Patras, Greece) (07/01/2015)
ENORASIS final conference entitled "The future of sustainable irrigation management in Europe" was organized as a satellite whole day event of IRLA 2014 International Symposium on November 27th 2014, at Astir Patras Hotel, Patras, Greece.
The event comprised of two technical sessions (technologies and innovations about sustainable irrigation management and water policies and strategies) and a roundtable discussion with selected keynote speakers from EU Commission and other EU research projects about sustainable irrigation.
Discussions focused on water pricing and policy issues, regarding the requirements of the Water Framework Directive and their smooth implementation in European countries, the assessment of end-users requirements with a bottom up and participative approach and the need to develop simple, cost effective, advanced irrigation systems for farmers.
An open presentation of ENORASIS sensors and live demonstration of the system was available to all IRLA 2014 symposium participants at the venue lobby. The demonstration attracted many participants that asked questions about the system's capabilities, related costs etc.
