Why come to Novatech ?

Novatech attracts professionals of all levels and from a diverse range of disciplines: scientists, policy-makers and technicians, French and international

Novatech builds bridges between disciplines and approaches, by welcoming both water professionals - specialists in drainage and aquatic environments- and urban planning and design professionals - urban planners and designers, strategic planners, landscape architects, architects and sociologists- who both work on land planning and management.

Novatech 2016 aims to go beyond just the science and technical aspects of urban drainage, strengthening the diversity of perspectives and stormwater management approaches, by encouraging even stronger participation from government agencies and municipalities (both French and international), and presentations from urban planners and designers, architects, landscape architects and sociologists.

Looking foward to seeing you in Lyon, from June 28th to July 1st, 2016!
