Water Europe has recently released its new position paper on ‘Digitalization and Water’ calling for digital and water-smart infrastructures in the two sectors. The document had featured PathoCERT amongst several EU projects working on digital innovative solutions for the water sector
The publication of this new position aspires to stress the interconnections between the digital and the water sector. The EU digital strategy aims to shape Europe’s digital future while benefiting everyone. The moment that digitalization benefits the water sector within its activities, the digital sector also consumes water for its businesses, contributing to increased levels of pressure on our water sources. For instance, Google has a water withdrawal equivalent to the population of Florence.
