Abstract: 
The Waternomics project aims to reduce the water consumption of municipalities, corporations and domestic users by providing water managers and consumers alike with timely and actionable information about water usage and water availability. Understanding the social, economic and environmental drivers for introducing the necessary smart water technologies helps shaping the architecture of a water information system. To get a better understanding of these drivers,Waternomics conducted workshops and interviews with various stakeholders from industry and municipalities in Greece, Italy, Ireland and the Netherlands. The results showed a wide range of ways in which water was managed and water conservation programs where implemented. From the research, the Waternomics water information system will be designed, developed and validated.
