CONTACTS

The DayWater project has now been running for more than a year and we would like to update you on the on-going scientific progress. Each of the scientific partners organised a regional conference inviting in total 280 end-users (in Oct/Nov 2003) in order to increase interaction between the end-users and ADSS developers. At this time the ADSS structure and functionality are in the process of definition through deep and detailed discussions. A first ADSS prototype is internally available for implementation and testing.

During the first 12 months, the DayWater teams have prepared numerous reports, which are available on our web-site as far as they are designated within the public domain.

For example the use of stormwater best management practices (BMPs) in Europe has been thoroughly documented and a report on risk perception, risk assessment and risk management related to the DayWater context has been finalised.

A number of end-users are supporting biotests applied to runoff and re-suspended sediment: the tests will be executed during the next 6 months.

During the first annual meeting in Athens, the scientific officer of the European Commission informed project partners about the upcoming 3rd call for the 6th Framework Programme. The CityNet Cluster steering committee meanwhile agreed on a procedure for the elaboration of a proposal, which will be discussed at the next end-user seminar in Ghent (16-18 March 2004).

During the first year of the CityNet Cluster two CityNet press releases have been disseminated to 78 news services in 10 countries.
