WaterScope International Inc.’s first workshop in Istanbul was held on 20 May, 2019 at the Hungarian Cultural Centre, Istanbul, Turkey. The event started with the speeches of Hungarian ambassador Viktor Matis, ALX Hungary general manager Fikret Nas and the Hungarian Exim Bank country director Arda Tugay. The introductory speeches were followed by WaterScope officials’ presentation on „Artificial Intelligence in microbiology”. The event was a great success among the large number of guests, who were able to see the operation of the 2nd generation WaterScope algae monitoring device, which has recently been introduced to the market. The discussions, led during and after the workshop, show very promising business opportunities, among other the possibility of signing distribution agreement and organizing further professional events.
We thank all our guests for their enthousiasm and active approach. We thank the valuable help of ALX Hungary, without whom this workshop could not have been realized. We hope the workshop provided new information for the participants and encouraged them to consider how this challenging technology can be implemented into their current working method.
