The MOXXI Working Group has the task to “promote the advancement of novel observational techniques that lead to new sources of information to help better understand the hydrological cycle”.
As an IAHS Working Group, it facilitates the networking of academics and scientists through events, publications, cooperations, and show-windowing. The MOXXI Working Group is innovative as it goes beyond the above mentioned audience by enlarging to and bridging to innovative enterprises and operational services. More information on MOXXI is available here.
Partner: International Association of Hydrological Sciences
Target Segment of the Conference: Hydrological Data Management
Relationship to other Conference Segments:
- Integration and assimilation of data from new sensors in existing networks and protocols is critical for innovating and improving services
- Associated sociology and management of innovation and change
- Associated capacity building
Connection to the development and delivery of a hydrological service for prosperity:
Worldwide spontaneous technological innovations, and the related multiple stakeholders, need to be integrated and assimilated by operational services and societies in order for added values to be really accounted for, put into practice and shared.
As regards future activities, another working group that focuses on citizen science called CandHy is currently being set up within IAHS. It is related to MOXXI both on the side of crowd sourcing and on the side of communication. Additional information can be found here.
