Deliverables

  • FREEWAT platform v.1.0 and User Manual v.1.0

    This deliverable will consist in the final stable and largely tested (during local courses and WP4 and WP5) version of the platform along with the final version of the User Manual. This version will be named FREEWAT v.1.0. Within this deliverable all the strengths and weaknesses (by a technical point of view) of the FREEWAT platform and suggestions for further development and amelioration as drawn from WP4 and WP5 (D4.2 and D5.2) will be incorporated. All Software and Software Documentation (including User's Manual and Tutorials) developed within the FREEWAT Project will be released and published with an Open Source license approved by the OSI (Open Source Initiative). Any file written within the FREEWAT Project should provide the following information: * a copyright notice; * a mention of the license. Any software package written within the FREEWAT Project should provide: * a LICENSE file with the text of the license; * a CONTRIBUTE.md file with the contributions procedure and methodology. Licenses on non-software production (User’s Manual) related to Software developed within the FREEWAT Project will also be Open Source such as CC-By or CC-By-Sa. The Project General Assembly will take an initial decision on the type of licenses to be applied during the Kick-Off Project meeting, following a proposal of licensing that will be prepared by the Steering Group. This decision will be reviewed during the Mid-Term Project Meeting. A Final decision will be taken during the Project Final Meeting, before the public release of the Software and Software Documentation.

  • Local courses to build capacity at national level

    The trainers formed in Task 3.2 will use the training materials delivered as D3.2 to demonstrate the FREEWAT platform capabilities through national workshops. About 650 people will be directly trained to the use of the platform within the EU, 60 in Switzerland, 100 in neighbouring countries (Ukraine and Turkey) and another 80 in Africa (in South Africa, Namibia and Botswana) thanks to the involvement of UNESCO-IHP. As such, courses will also be held in Switzerland at IST-SUPSI or collaborating universities premises. IGRAC will support UNESCO in performing training activities in Africa.

  • National workshop organized by each partner involved with case study

    All the partners having performed a case study will be asked to hold a national workshop at their premises. Expecte number of participant to each workshop is about 100 persons (based on previous experience of the project coordinator). They will be held between month 27 and 28.

  • Open workshop during the three official project meetings

    During the three official project meetings (kick-off, -mid-term and final), each hosting partner will organize a workshop open to the public where the various issues dealt within the project will be presented. There will be then three open workshops.

  • Training materials - final version

    Training materials consisting in lecture notes, tutorials (including dedicated files) will be prepared and distributed at the end of the project through the project web site. The training material aims to help the users of the FREEWAT platform to test its capabilities on all the subject of Water Resource Management implemented (as described in WP2). IGRAC will also prepare and share with the other partners contents related to the Global Groundwater Information System (GGIS) to be presented during the training. Licenses on non-software production (training materials) related to Software developed within the FREEWAT Project will be Open Source such as CC-By or CC-By-Sa.

  • Final report on the Focus Groups integrating the participatory approach to technical modelling activities

    A final report summarising the experiences on the integration of the participatory approach to the modelling technical activities will be drawn by PRN out of all the Minutes of the FGs prepared in Task 6.2. It will focus on discussing the practical applications of ICT innovative tools to cope the water-related problems of the area of interest and their relationship with the WFD/GWD and water-related Directives.

  • Acceptance for publication of at least seven scientific and technical peer-reviewed papers

    This deliverable is about the acceptance for publication of at least one peer-reviewed article (end of first year), two peer-reviewed articles (end of second year), four peer-reviewed articles end of the project (with also the involvement of IST- SUPSI ) describing to the scientific and technical community project progress and outcomes. A minimum of seven scientific papers is expected to be published. Target journals will be not only ISI ones, but also technical ones devoting to technological transfer. Open access solutions will be followed. The Coordinator will promote this kind of publications within the partnership.

  • Guidance on model-supported application of EU water related Directives for water quantity and quality

    "Report named ""Guidance on model-supported application of EU water related Directives for water quantity and quality "" that will be a proposal for a reference document at the European level to be used as support for decision makers dealing with Water Resources Management (WRM). "

  • Policy briefs

Each Policy brief will address particular aspects of the WFD/GWD and water-related Directives and will be translated in all the languages of the project partners (by each case study partner) and proposed as practical tool to be used in order to ensure better knowledge-based decisions.

  • Submission of at least twelve conference papers per year (minimum of thirty)

    This deliverable is about the submission of at least twelve conference papers per year (overall minimum of thirty at the end of the project), with also the involvement of IST- SUPSI, describing the scientific and technical community project progress and outcomes. Resources have been duly allocated within the partnership to take part in scientific, technical and dissemination events where project activities and results may be presented. Open access solutions will be followed. The Coordinator will promote this kind of publications within the partnership.

  • Report on market and business model and application scenario

    This report will consist in presenting a market and business model for the exploitation of the FREEWAT platform as also derived from partners suggestions. Application scenarios will be presented to describe market uptake of the FREEWAT platform taking into account its open source and public domain nature.

  • Final Report

    The deliverable will consist in a report summarizing the project activities performed and the results achieved during the project duration.
