Organized by: Ecomondo Technical-Scientific Committee, DigitalWater2020 Synergy Group and ICT4WATER, Water Europe, European Commission, Università Politecnica delle Marche

Digital and cyber-physical systems in urban and industrial water cycles are more and more available at commercial level, while innovations have been developed and validated in recent EU-Horizon2020 projects which have reached their final stage. In this context, ICT4WATER is a large cluster of EU projects to boost digital innovation in water sector, while DigitalWater2020 Synergy Group (DW2020) is a group of n.5 Horizon2020 projects that has closely worked on four thematic tasks forces: FIWARE and ontology, Sensors and demonstration, Business models and Communication. In addition, digital twins and cyber-physical systems have been proposed for urban-industrial symbiosis and water-smart industries. After presenting the final results of DW2020, the workshop will provide demos of relevant solutions and serve as an interactive session to support market uptake.
