The GUARDIAN project has been showcased at Efiaqua, the International Fair for Efficient Water Management, through a dedicated stand and two round table presentations. Efiaqua is a forum in which all sectors for which water is a strategic resource are represented, such as the business world, local administration (cities), irrigation communities, technology companies, laboratories, equipment manufacturers, drinking and wastewater managers or desalination technology providers.
The Fair’s objective is to act as an international meeting point, a forum in which Spanish and international companies show their technology to visitors from all over the world, both in the exhibition and in its practical application, promoting knowledge, innovations and business for efficient water management, with a global vision aimed at fostering synergies.
Efiaqua was held from October 1 to 3 at Feria Valencia, receiving 4,500 visitors. During these three days, two presentations took place, in which all the project partners participated to explain the project and their role in it. Among the visitors, it is worth to mention the presence of the "Coordinadora de Bosques del Turia" (Coordinating Association of the Turia Forests), a network of 30 entities (NGOs, industry, merchants, schools, neighbourhood associations, etc.) related to the Vallesa area in which the project is being developed.
The GUARDIAN stand attracted special interest from local and regional administration representatives, and the project received attention from national and regional press and other media. The Fair was also served to present the new project identity, present in the stand and in the distributed leaflets.
