    Title of presentation: Adding value through data-model integration and digital twins

    Abstract of presentation: A key challenge in the digitalisation of water management systems is how to capitalise on the increasing volume of data becoming available. A digitalisation framework is presented that describes a typical evolution of a water management system. Core elements are data-model integration and use of digital twins that combine physics-based modelling, data-driven modelling, and prescriptive analytics.

      Environmental regulation increasingly relies on data, which are sometimes too sparse and other times of unknown quality, and often located in isolated data repositories. Onsite sensors are ancreasingly installed and IoT enabled, comprehensive spatial data sets are obtained from remote sensing, and open weather and climate data are on the way. Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) increasingly play a role in improving data quality and value creation, but there is still a huge unmet need for affordable sensing of environmental quality parameters. There is a huge potential worldwide for innovation within digitalization of environmental data, but how do we boost the needed collaboration between domain experts and digital experts?
