The presentation was hosted on an innovative conferencing platform that combined both physical and virtual participation, meaning ideas sharing and networking opportunities were still flowing, despite the physical separation.
It was a great initiative and implementation to keep people innovating for water.
VAPAR was privileged to attend the W-lab workshop last week, which is an innovative tech program run by Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA), Isle Utilities and ThinkPlace. We were invited to provoke thought around new ways of looking at problems and overcoming challenges in implementing innovative tech.It was great to see that the Australian water industry is so focused on adopting change the right way.
Co-founder and CTO Michelle Aguilar had an excellent opportunity to share the latest developments we are working on with United Utilities last night at the 2020 annual SWAN conference. Presenting with James Devereux in the Wastewater panel, we saw plenty of incredible developments in this space and are excited to see innovative tech being adopted around the world to deal with the challenges. It is promising to see some of the giants of the water industry are busting through barriers for adoption. The insights that have come from working with UU over the past nine months have been invaluable!
Amanda Siqueira, CEO and Co-founder of VAPAR, will be presenting this month at the Sydney Build Expo 2020. Join her at the digital engineering summit to learn more about what we do, where we’re at and how we’ve progressed.
VAPAR was privileged to sponsor and present at The Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia (IPWEA) NSW North Metropolitan region meeting, where the focus was on Asset Management. Fascinating insights were shared, discussing the variations in asset management plans and approaches across councils in NSW, as well as the collaboration of capital works planning across different service providers.
This October, our CTO, Michelle Aguilar, had the privilege to take part in British Water‘s annual data conference. It was a great opportunity to obtain various insights into how the water sector can manage data more effectively.
The conference had an impressive line up of speakers, including presenters from the transport and electricity utilities sectors, sharing insights into similar challenges to those the water industry faces.
The event was well-attended and VAPAR was glad to be a part of it. It was brilliant to see the openness and drive that the UK utilities have demonstrated around process optimisation and data management.
Last month, VAPAR had the privilege of presenting at the Assetic SA User Group in Adelaide to 55 attendees from 17 councils.
It was a collaborative forum where speakers and asset managers came together to discuss how applications in deep machine learning, automation and digital twins can change the face of public infrastructure management to serve our communities better.
The discussion between all of attendees involved was what made the forum truly collaborative. The best way to drive innovation adoption is to get feedback first hand, and we were privileged to be involved!
