In this talk, we will talk about one of the most recently created AULAS CIMNE: the AULA ‘CIMNE-ETSI UPM’, attached to the School of Industrial Engineering of the Technical University of Madrid (UPM).

It will be described its origin, motivation and some of the most relevant actions carried out since its creation in 2020. Some of the main lines of interest of this AULA will be presented, highlighting the application of numerical models and Machine Learning methods to various fields: water quality, disinfection techniques and drinking water distribution systems.

The aim of this AULA is to consolidate the collaboration between these two entities, focusing their activity on training activities and the search for research and development projects.

The talk will be given in Spanish.
