CALL Copenhagen

CALL Copenhagen-projektet blev afsluttet i 2021.
The CALL Copenhagen-project was completed in 2021.

CALL Copenhagen was a regional development project initiated and funded by the Capital Region of Denmark, owned by Greater Copenhagen Utility (HOFOR) and managed in collaboration with the City of Copenhagen, the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI), the Danish Water and Waste Water Association (DANVA) and the utility company Novafos from 2016-2021.

One of the main objectives of the project was to develop a viable model for a water oriented living lab to support a faster development and upscaling of sustainable climate adaptation solutions – and to test different types of cross-cutting and collaborative innovation actions in the process.

CALL Copenhagen ended in 2021 as planned. However, the effort continues in The Danish Climate Adaptation Network (DNNK), which is an important part of the project outcome.

DNNK continue working for a climate adapted Denmark and green growth by creating, gathering and sharing knowledge and solutions.

DNNK consolidates different networks and initiatives with a focus on the water cycle and climate adaptation. In addition to CALL Copenhagen, it initially included the networks KLIKOVAND (focus on the development of municipal climate adaptation plans), Water in Urban Areas (triple helix innovation network) and INUNDO (think tank for coastal protection).

Multi-beneficial solution monitoring

An inner city square in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen is redesigned into a complex climate adaptation solution with parking as well as large storm water retention capacity underground, permable tiles and recreational facilities to prevent flooding, improve air quality and mitigate heat island effect. However, the actual effect of the solution is not tested and documented. .…

Catchment Monitoring

A system is tested to monitor the hydrological functionality and capacity of the catchment to support the collaborative impact assessment of 1) sea water level rise 2) increased rainstorm frequency and intensity and 3) summer droughts and changed precipitation pattern. The catchment spans 8 different local governments, 3 water utilities, rural and urban areas, and…

Rain Gauge Test Facility

Accurate monitoring of precipitation is the key to defining design conditions for control and regulation of flow as well as warning systems. Precipitation can be monitored using a range of methodologies that describe the type of precipitation (snow, size of raindrops), spatial distribution (radar) and precipitation intensity. CALL role and contribution To gain a better…
