Juan Pablo Rodriguez, a euPOLIS expert from the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá participated recently in the ICUD 2024 Conference where he presented the euPOLIS methodologies through a poster, on the topic: Feasibility methodology for selecting and locating urban Nature-based solutions considering socio-economic criteria.​

Recognized as the most important international event in urban drainage, the ICUD is held in different parts of the world by groups of active researchers, selected and designated by the JCUD after a competitive assessment of submitted proposals. During the pandemic, the ICUD was held online to keep the long tradition of exchanging the latest research in the field of urban drainage going. In 2024, the conference was held in person again in the city of Delft, the Netherlands.

The ICUD conference aims to present the latest advances and innovations in fundamental and applied research on urban drainage, considering the themes of metrology, hydrology, hydraulics, water quality, and socio-economics. Among its specific interest are urban water quality, in-sewer processes, stormwater management, modeling and control, and asset management. The ICUD strives to maintain its long-standing broad international recognition as a prominent platform for the advancement of scientific knowledge in the field of urban drainage. It considers these activities in the wider context of urban water systems, with eh ambition of developing and promoting sustainable and integrated urban water management.
