The project partners met on 07 and 08 February 2022 at the Stadtwerke Bühl for the kick-off meeting of the BioWaWi project. The meeting took place in a hybrid form of online and face-to-face participation, which allowed all partners to attend despite Corona restrictions. During the two days, productive discussions were held and plans for future collaboration were developed. The second day was followed by the advisory board meeting, where all project partners and advisory board members had the opportunity to get to know each other. The meeting ended with a visit to the study areas, during which the participants were able to gain detailed insights into water production in these areas, among other things.
