WP 3: Urban Stormwater Management

Objectives of the WP

Determining the status of urban stormwater management in participating regions vs. the best known global

level, compiling best practices, and creating strategies for raising regional level of know-how and adopting more

effective practices 


Identifying global demand, opportunities, challenges and bottlenecks for miniaturised water quality monitoring

technology within urban stormwater management 


Description of work


 Based upon data from D2.1, in the field of urban stormwater management, analysing in detail the status quo in

participating regions and additional regional capabilities potentially resulting in new research 


 existing regional RTD policies, plans and activities, their evolution and their impact

--- regional public and private RTD actors

--- financial actors relevant for RTD and innovation

--- strengths and weaknesses of the regions concerned

--- existing regional smart specialisation strategies, cluster policy and initiatives

--- economic development strengths, opportunities and needs, and economic development policies

--- European and international context

--- mentoring for capacity building

--- quantitative information for A3.1: this depends on the extent of A2.1


Gathering and analysing best practices in urban stormwater mgmt (A3.2, 18 PM):

--- exhaustive literature review for identification of the best urban stormwater management practices all over the


--- in-depth analysis of the distribution and efficiency of current urban stormwater management techniques in the

participating regions, in comparison to the best identified best global level

--- in-depth analysis of the transferability of the techniques by means of identifying the success factors and

working principles of the best urban stormwater management practices

--- development of policies to aid the integration and dissemination of these techniques to other regions

- Analysing global demand, opportunities, challenges and bottlenecks for technology miniaturisation enabling

automated monitoring of rainwater quality in urban catchments via small-size, self-powered monitoring devices

applicable for nonexpert use
