Outreach Activities

Targeted and successful dissemination is a vital aim of NIREAS-IWRC. To help achieve this, Nireas-IWRC is devising targeted dissemination/training modules for engineers, public agencies, SMEs and the general public. Additional training elements include: (1) dissemination to proposed users of emerging tools, techniques and technologies arising from the individual engineering projects, (2) provision of comprehensive, timely, accessible, and reliable data to support and promote the developed tools, techniques and technologies, (3) fostering a general understanding within the target user group of developments in engineering-focused technology tools, (4) actively disseminating the findings of quality research evidence and promoting their use in practice and policy. Much of this activity involves raising awareness of key messages from the research outputs and providing them in easily accessible formats (such as paper and electronic publications), making use of relevant scientific organizations (such as IWA and EWRA), and promoting the work of the research group through peer-reviewed journal publications, conference proceedings, and presentations at conferences and workshops.

To-date, there has been involvement of Nireas-IWRC in many public outreach activities, local and international competitions, training seminars, public lectures, etc., including, but not limited to:

  • Stockholm Junior Water Prize
  • World Water Monitoring Day
  • Researcher's Night
  • S-Factor contest by Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation
  • FameLab contest
  • NIREAS-IWRC "When Ideas Flow" Speaker Series
  • NIREAS-IWRC Educational Series Seminars
  • Water Development Department Open Day
