The results of the Bergen RS were disseminated at an annual national conference for water and sewerage works organized by Norwegian Water (Norsk Vann). Norwegian Water is an association of Norwegian municipalities and municipality owned companies representing the water industry in the country and 95% of the population.
This conference was selected for BINGO dissemination due to its ability to gather a broad range of relevant stakeholders outside Bergen and thus increase the impact of BINGO in Norway. The conference is a large event and BINGO was presented in a parallel session for ‘Innovation in the water industry’.
Both the research partner NTNU and the end-user Bergen K was present. The dissemination was successful and followed by a fruitful plenary discussion on the results and their implications for Bergen and the exploitation potential of the results.
After the parallel session, the presentation also engaged several municipalities facing similar challenges as Bergen in one-to-one discussions with the BINGO partners on how to transfer the knowledge obtained in BINGO to their respective locations.
