2nd Meeting of the National Infrastructure HIMIOFoTS – Surface Water component

The meeting of the National Research Infrastructure HIMIOFoTS was presented by Mr. Perivoliotis (ELKETHE) who explained the services, the products and the required plans. Immediately after, the head of the surface water component Mr. Mamasis (NTUA) dissected the structure and tools of the surface water component. Then, more presentations followed to explain the detailed use of the Waste Information Network Hydrosystems (

More detailed, they were presented:

The installation and use of automated stations for the quality of the water – Elias Dimitriou (Hellenic Center for Marine Research)
The hydrometric network: installation, completing and services – Katerina Mazi (National Observatory of Athens)
Experiences from the function of agri-meteorological stations in Epirus – Nikolaos Malamos and Ioannis Tsirogiannis (University of Ioannina)
Information system – Presentation of the platform – Dimitris Kalogeras (Helical University Institute of Communication & Computer Devices) & Nikos Mamasis (National Technical University of Athens)

All of the functions appear in the “news and actions” of HIMIOFoTS: (

After the presentations, there was some fruitful conversation between the participants. During the meeting, the participants discussed about the applications of the data and the ways that one can access them. The discussion was addressed by Mr. Antonios Koussis (National Observatory of Athens).

With the approach of applications, event, decoders from solutions, vectors and diadem that required with the various people who used the questions and the questions of personal report and personal self we offer with the dialogue plans and the various products and types of use and wetland technique.

The assistance was co-organized by HCMR and the Consulting Company AMBIO.

In 2021, there will be held some exclusive meetings to targeted users.
