The aim of this project is to ensure sustainable management of water and sanitation for all, and to promote the transition towards sustainable value chains and inclusive and sustainable economic growth. We believe that the development of digital twins, not only for the systems and processes but for the water treatment infrastructure as a whole, can open up for new efficient techniques and sustainable innovations.
University of Skövde contributes to Open Waters with recommendations developed through analysis of practices concerning use of software and file formats for provision of shared design and open data in the context of critical water treatment infrastructure. Specificially, the analysis considers open standards and open source software as enablers for ensuring sustainable management of water and sanitation.
