The final conference for SIPE (an environmental Standards Information Portal for Europe) was held on June 17th in Brussels.
iWIDGET was represented here as one of the main tasks for the iWIDGET project is to identify and define standards that will facilitate the development of ICT and smart water technologies.
The SIPE-RTD Web Portal offers information on Standards, interlinked with Research projects and results and with Policies in the environmental compartments Water & Marine, Air, Waste & Sludge, Soil & Sediments. The conference’s main goal was the official launch of the SIPE-RTD Web Portal, showing its potential in knowledge brokering with respect to Standards development and implementation.
