The "Regional Delft FEWS Meeting 2022 for German Speaking Users" took place on 20 June 2022. Hydrotec and Deltares had invited everyone from the German speaking Delft-FEWS community to attend. More than 40 users and interested parties participated in the digital event and took the opportunity to exchange insights on current applications and processes, and learn about recent innovations.
