Lousada Ferreira, Maria

“Watershare exists to connect knowledge and end-users all over the word. Real connections are made by sharing each other’s challenges. The hackathon is addressing exactly those challenges, therefore it will contribute to forge a stronger relation between the Watershare partners. Consequently, contributing to a stronger water sector.

I’m personally happy to be involved, because I believe the best solutions come from new perspectives to solve old problems. I see the hackathon has many ideas, where creativity and idealism come together. We all need inspiration to solve the challenges in the water sector, and the hackathon will be at the source of it.” – Maria Lousada Ferreira, Scientific Researcher, KWR 

We will hold the Hackathon on October 14th and 15th virtually and in Spanish.

Aysa will implement the 3 winning projects.
