Novatech 2016 planning technologies urban water stormwater management FRGBIndex

Within the context of an uncertain future due to increasing urban development, along with a changing climate, stormwater management is a major concern, requiring innovative answers, fuelled by the latest research and proof of concept in the field. To create and implement strategies at the catchment scale, to better characterise runoff and wet weather flow, to design and manage alternative solutions to traditional sewer systems and to better plan and integrate them within the urban landscape, to promote stormwater management as a key component of the sustainable city; these are the many challenges which Novatech aims to address.


Co-organised by the GRAIE and the INSA Lyon, the 9th edition of the Novatech conference which will be held from June 28th to July 1st, 2016 in Lyon, France.
For 20 years, Novatech has been one of the leading international conferences promoting solutions for integrated and sustainable stormwater management.
