Side session: The Water Information System for Europe (WISE) – your gateway to information on European Water issues

23 May - 16.30 - 18.00

Salon Rouge

2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the WISE (Water Information System for Europe) concept, and 5 years since its public launch. Its success is largely a story of 10 years of close cooperation between the European Commission (DG ENV, DG R&I, JRC, Eurostat), the EEA and Member States.

This side session will present the achievements of the WISE system so far, as well as some of the stumbling blocks encountered during its development. WISE will continue to expand and the aim of this session is also to present plans to improve the system and to make it even more user- friendly in the future.
