The second cross-border workshop in SBPIN focused on Krinovas testbed. Krinovas testbed is a method of how to work with challenges related to water. It is an environment designed for development and experimental processes, with access to resources and test functions. In the second blue workshop we would like to show the participants physical parts of the testbed and give examples of how it has been used for water related innovation.
