The SMART-Control team met between 21-23 January 2020 in southern France for the project mid-term workshop. The meeting was organised by the French partners BRGM and Suez in collaboration with the municipality of Hyères-les-Palmiers city. The agenda included a series or reports on project progress at all case studies, a brief introduction to the INOWAS modelling platform and the simulation tools developed within the project and discussions about the project management and the way forward. At the end of the workshop, our partners from Suez organised a field trip to the Aquarenova MAR site in the suburbs of Hyères city. On the last day, the team used the opportunity to visit the Porquerolles island and investigated opportunities for further replication of SMART-Control concept at other MAR sites in France and worldwide.
