Roundtable on Water Quality Monitoring: Deriving Actionable Data to Drive Policy Decisions

3:00–6:00 pm
UChicago Center in Delhi


This roundtable, hosted by the Tata Centre for Development at UChicago in collaboration with International Innovation Corps, will deliberate on a wide range of issues related to water quality monitoring. Researchers, policy advocates, and on-the-ground practitioners will come together to discuss how to create actionable data on water pollution, influence policy, and boost India’s potential to fight pollution in its rivers. At a time when there is an enormous need for monitoring and mapping water quality at high spatial and temporal resolution, this roundtable gives a platform to discuss the future of gathering and disseminating water quality data. The roundtable will also explore opportunities to collaborate on creating a common platform to address water quality challenges.

Supratik Gupta, Professor at the Institute for Molecular Engineering, University of Chicago, will demonstrate learnings from his Water-to-Cloud experiment on India’s major rivers.

This event is by invitation only.
