Swan Community engagement guidelines

The SWAN Forum has initiated activity within working groups in order to:

>> Identify, map and report on the current state of affairs, and on opportunities for improvement
>> Discuss and recommend potential approaches and measurable actions for improving current state, and identify additional industry stakeholders who should be involved in this process
>> Define and share best practices, common formats, standards and approaches with the community, and engage in turning them from theory to practice with active involvement of utilities, vendors, experts and other stakeholders.

The first groups to have been formed are:

>Data interoperability and reuse in the smart water network (Group Chair: Dr. Paul Linford, Syrinix)
>ROI on Smart Water Initiatives: Streamlining benefit analysis, ROI calculations and industry figures (Group Chair: Simon Bunn, Derceto)
>Communication protocols and connectivity in the smart water grid (Group Chair: JP Vasseur, Cisco)
> Investment in Smart Water Network Technologies (Group Chair: WIls Theagene, Smart Cleantech Partners)

If you are interested in taking active part in a working group, please request to join the Swan community on the Community homepage. You will be contacted by the group chair or Swan representative.
