30-second pitch

SWITCH-ON is a project using Open Data as a vehicle for innovations, with the aim to use water resources in a sustainable way for a safe society and to advance hydrological sciences. We are building bridges between policy makers, water managers, information producers and scientists.
All project assets are available at the web Portal, including dedicated Search tools for water-related open data. There is an open Virtual Product Market with 14 running software producing information for efficient water management and policy. We have initiated a Virtual Water-Science Laboratory for scientists to collaborate on computational experiments, and we arrange for Knowledge Brokerage to facilitate a dialogue on development and marketing of information products.
