Idrica, the company specializing in the digital transformation of the water cycle, has recently become a member of the Institut Méditerranéen de l’Eau, IME (Mediterranean Water Institute) and will be one of the sponsors of its 40th anniversary celebrations.
The symposium is set to take place on September 19 and 20 and will be focusing on the theme “Our Mediterranean: water challenges and regional priorities for 2050.” The Spanish city of Valencia, in collaboration with the Jucar Water Authority, has been chosen to host the event.
Founded in 1982, the IME’s members are all stakeholders in the water challenges facing the Mediterranean. This non-governmental organization brings together local, regional and national authorities, and public- and private-sector companies. Its mission is to offer specialized services, training and publications to respond to the specific needs of its members.
As one of its newest members, Idrica will be participating in the IME’s anniversary with a conference entitled “Why is data key to digital sustainability in water? Recent groundbreaking case studies,” given by Jorge Helmbrecht, Idrica’s Business Development Manager. Global Omnium will also be supporting the event by sponsoring the gala dinner on September 19.
The symposium is a unique opportunity to share experiences and discuss the challenges facing the Mediterranean and the future priorities in the water sector. In addition, the meeting will serve to prepare the 5th Mediterranean Water Forum in Tunisia in 2023 and the 10th World Water Forum in Bali in 2024, and it will focus on topics such as water resource planning and management, financing, desalination, and forecasts for 2050.
