Do we know everything about our lakes, especially the smaller ones? How can a data space help to improve water assessment of these areas? That’s why we have Malte Zamzow on our team. He is an enviromental engineer specialized in water and soil research who has been working for 6 years at the Kompetenzzentrum Wasser Berlin (Germany) in topics like surface water, stormwater runoff and chemical risk assesment. We interviewed him as part of the series of videos we are posting on our Youtube Channel presenting our different partners.

KWB is a research institute working on various aspects on the whole water cycle leading projects mainly in the city of Berlin, but also Germany and Europe wide. Through dedicated research, practical solutions and innovative services, KWB is adressing climate change, water crises, digitalisation, urbanisation and the promotion of smart cities.

Their team is in charge of our water quality pilot, which relates to the zero pollution objective of the European Green Deal. The challenge is to obtain more and better knowledge about some small lakes in the city of Berlin, which are not protected by the European Water Framework Directive. These spots are of huge importance for biodiversity, heat island effect mitigation and as recreational area. In this link, you can learn more about this case study.
