Workshop sensors @VEG-i-TEC

VEG-i-TEC UGent Graaf Karel de Goedelaan 44, 8500 Kortrijk

Energy and water are precious, so they must be used wisely. But do we really know how these precious resources are used?
How much do we use or consume? And is the water always of the proper quality?

The use of sensors is crucial here. The SmartWaterUse and Interreg FWVl VEG-i-TEC projects are therefore joining forces to share their knowledge with you. An interactive workshop is offered in which we go through the entire process from sensor to measurement and the correct management of the data.

Afterwards, VEG-i-TEC & partners will hold an open door with guided tours and demos of partners and technology suppliers where you can get in touch with their innovations, and get an overview of the testing infrastructure and possibilities of VEG-i-TEC.

Do you want to know more about the research of the VEG-i-TEC partners on sensors? New emerging sensors? The use of alternative water sources? Or do you want to attend this unique open door event to meet different experts and exchange ideas in an accessible way? Feel free to drop by!
