Symposium on the Food-Water-Energy Nexus

12 August - 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

A CityGML based shared urban platform development to maximise synergies in the food, water and energy sectors is in the focus of the FWE IN-SOURCE project. Coordinated at the HFT Stuttgart, teams in Vienna, New York City and Stuttgart work jointly on technological and socioeconomic research questions. In this final event the project team would like to present their own results as well as exchange experiences with other FWE Nexus projects. We look forward to welcoming you to this hybrid Symposium on 14 and 15 September. Participation is free of charge.
