State of the art of project implementation since the project start

The main goal of E²STORMED project is to provide city decision makers with a Decision Support Tool (DST) that includes economic, energetic and environmental criteria in the stormwater decision-making process, promoting an integrated urban water management. The final version of the E²STORMED DST has been finished based on the partners’ suggestions and it has been applied for second time in the pilot cases. Project partners have met seven times (Valencia, Cetinje, Pisa, Hersonissos, Zagreb, Malta...

Latest project activities and outputs

The reporting period has been the last period of the project, so it has been focused in elaborating the final version of all the deliverables and in disseminating the project results. The final version of the Decision Support Tool has been translated to E²STORMED languages and distributed to other national, regional and local entities through six DST Workshops. It has been applied in the six pilot sites for the second time and in a testing case in Piedmont. In addition, a Strategic Action Plan...
