The End User Outlooks on Earth Observation webinar was organised by the consortium of the EU Horizon 2020 PrimeWater Project in conjunction with the Earth Observation (EO) for Water Management Community of Practice, a subgroup of the IWA Digital Water Programme.
The Earth Observation (EO) for Water Management Community of Practice (CoP) brings together experts from different sectors of the water industry interested in the use of Earth observation technologies for improved water quality and quantity management.
During the webinar, the results from the PrimeWater Project H2020 were presented. PrimeWater offers a complete suite of services that enable water industry professionals to identify and assess possible hydro-ecological risks in freshwater systems at an early-stage, trigger anticipatory actions and reduce exposure to water quality hazards through smart, adaptive lake management.
The focus of this webinar was to gather opinions and feedback from an expert panel of EO practitioners on the use of the services provided by PrimeWater.
The audience, together with the panellists, were involved in a collaborative activity focused on benefits, opportunities, barriers, and risks linked to the use of the PrimeWater products.

PrimeWater is applied in four full-scale international case studies, located in Europe, USA, and Australia. The case studies challenge the transferability of PrimeWater applications in diverse water catchment systems and sectors. In each case study, different perspectives of water circle management (water resources management, environmental protection, and potable water supply production) are addressed to ensure that PrimeWater meets specific user requirements.
