150 participants attended this conference to exchange know-how and experiences in the use of innovative technologies, notably satellite applications, to improve the water cycle management, to monitor the irrigation infrastructure, to increase “crop per drop”, to prevent floods on cultivated fields and to reduce the environmental impact of irrigation. Operational good practices of use of satellite applications and innovative technologies have been showcased by representatives of public administrations or companies working on irrigation management, with the aim of informing other water managers of available solutions and of evaluating good practices’ transferability.
