On 11 June 2018, two events were organized at Antwerp to inform professionals (during an afternoon event) and the public (during an evening event) about the HYDROVENTIV “smart greenroof” that BRIGAID is testing on the rooftop of the Beweging.net building at Antwerp.
The events were very successful; about 150 people attended in total. They showed very high interest and enthusiasm about our initiative.
The attendees got explanations by the city of Antwerp about why greenroofs are so important for the city, by the building owner on why he made the rooftop available for the BRIGAID testing, and by the BRIGAID WP4 leader KU Leuven (Patrick Willems, Vincent Wolfs) on the technical details of the innovation and the testing results so far.
Also some inspirational examples about greenroofs were provided by partners. The attendees could also visit the rooftop and view the test site. The innovator Vegetal i.D. together with KU Leuven gave explanations about the ongoing tests on site.
