Purpose of Data Processing

Your involvement is vital for the project to achieve sustainability. The innovation process starts and ends with the users' involvement with the expression of their desires/needs and then the validation of the developed technologies within the identified business/use cases. Therefore, the purpose of the survey is to collect feedback from the end-users and stakeholders of the WQeMS services about their potential training needs. The analysis and consideration of the feedback will facilitate the creation of useful training material, which will help you acquire the necessary skills and competencies for the effective adoption of a set of services that deal with inland water features’ estimation through earth observation. This analysis is in alignment with the original purposes of the project and will be exploited within the duration of project. In case of the survey results’ exploitation beyond the duration of the project an updated consent form will be prepared and provided to users.
