Common Metadata for water / river basin management


During the WaterInnEU Interoperability Pilot Kick-Off held on February 9th at the EIP-Water conference in Leeuwarden, a discussion between people from different research projects in the field of water innovation portals resulted in the idea to exchange metadata specifications, and, if possible, to define a common metadata model and database for accessing the metadata as open data with well-defined semantics, by, for example, using existing vocabularies or ontologies.


  • collect metadata specifications of research projects
  • discuss common metadata elements
  • discuss common metadata model
  • if possible, set up open database



Notes on the telcos held can be found here.
