This week I have been to Mumbai/India. After 9 hours flight I arrived again this amazing dynamic and crazy city. It is the third time of IFAT India; the trade show I always attend to lead the German Pavilion.
This time we have prepared, together with our friend Prof. Singh, the 1. University Challenge in IWRM (Integrated Waters Resources Management).
Eight teams from e.g. Delhi, Jaipur, Bangalore, Pune, Warangal, Gujarat showed up. The Tasked was to create a smart “green province” by using the 62 DWA Environmental Cards. These cards cover water structures, water supply, wastewater, waste and energy subjects. To place them in the green province was the challenge.
The Team from Jaipur won and they will travel to the IFAT Munich in 2016. This is possible because the Ludwig Obländer Federation (founder of the company WILO) supports this event. The WILO Company invited the first and second team from MSU Gujarat to his pump factory. A great and nice support for this event.
The Jury and the students in Action
It is great to see the young people active. The winner team is happy and looking forward to travel the first time to Germany and to participate on the 1. World University Challenge in IWRM during IFAT Munich 2016.
The DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) organized an Alumni Programme during this week and the 15 participants, most Professors from various countries, participated on the “serious game” competition “Aqua Republica”. Thanks to the company DHI who supports us in this new discipline.
I enjoyed it very much to keep professors and students busy for 3 hours during the trade show.
The winner from Jaipur, remember these faces, a great future ahead
