Innovations (WG05)


The goal of this working group is to promote new research innovations / technologies for the use in existing or upcoming regional or local LEWS. Today, operational LEWS often work with established methods. In this working group we would like to highlight ideas and experiences related to novel methods that are promising but not well-proven yet. And we want to discuss what is needed to successfully implement such innovations for operational use.
