WISE CDT Industry Event

Date: 2nd March 2016

Location: Atkins Office, Bristol, BS32 4RZ

WISE CDT Industry Event

The EPSRC Water Informatics: Science and Engineering Centre for Doctoral Training (WISE CDT) carries out research into topics at the interface of Water Engineering, Water Management, Environmental Science, and Informatics Technology. This networking event aims to explore the ways in which organisations can engage with the WISE CDT research students to tackle the challenges they face. The aim is to stimulate new partnerships and identify research project leverage for industrial collaborators. WISE

CDT students and academics will be available for discussions on potential new partnerships. The WISE CDT is a collaboration between the GW4 Alliance: the Universities of Exeter, Bath, Bristol and Cardiff University, with around £12M of funding.

Venue: Atkins Plc, The Hub, Aztec West, 500 Park Ave, Almondsbury, Bristol BS32 4RZ



16:00 Welcome & Introductions, Dr Tom Arnot, Co-Director WISE CDT.

16:05 The WISE Centre for Doctoral Training, Prof Dragan Savic, Director WISE CDT.

16:15 Future Water Challenges, Hugh Thomas, Technical Leader – Process, Atkins.

16:25 Research Project Presentations:

•    A new ecosystem service approach for nutrient, energy, and water management at catchment scale, Mariano Marinari, University of Bath.

•   Advanced hydraulic modelling for flood risk analysis, Ioanna Stamataki, University of Bath.

•   High resolution flood modelling of deltas, Laurence Hawker, University of Bristol.

•   Simulating the risk of Liver Fluke infection using a mechanistic hydro-epidemiological model,

Ludovica Beltrame, University of Bristol.

•    Modelling the impact of marine renewable energy structures and devices on flood risk and water quality, Nejc Coz, Cardiff University.

•    Modelling the transport and decay of Faecal Indicator Organisms at a sub-daily time scale in estuarine and coastal waters, Jonathan King, Cardiff University.

investigating the effects of catchment and water resource management, Josie Ashe, University of Exeter.

•    Automating detection of faults in small wastewater pipes using CCTV footage, Josh Myrans, University of Exeter.

17:15 Networking, Posters & Refreshments

Around 40 PhD students and academics will be available to discuss their interests and develop potential partnerships. Posters will cover the above topics as well as: Sustainable surface water management strategies; Methodological modelling for multiple concepts; Assessment of nutrient and coliform loads in storm runoff; Reservoir management via improved decision making; Flood dynamics of the Somerset levels; and The effect of small scale turbulence on plume dynamics.
