26 Oct The campus wants to become a benchmark in the use of geothermal energy
Water is a scarce resource and it will become increasingly so. Therefore, knowing how this resource has been managed in the past can be key to contributing to a better future. The third edition of the International Water Congress started yesterday on the Ourense campus with this aim in mind.
The event, which on this occasion bears the motto Water, Society and Territory and focuses on the fields of history, geography and art, was inaugurated yesterday by the rector of the University of Vigo, Manuel Reigosa, who stressed that “we envision a great future for the campus of Ourense and much of that future has to do with the strategic commitment of the Auga Campus. In reference to the specialization plan, he added that “the human capital that we are going to have in the campus related to water is going to be of first magnitude”, and he added that the academic institution works with the Galician administration “so that the Ourense campus takes advantage of the geothermal capacity that the territory has and becomes a reference in this aspect”.
