The European Irrigation Association (EIA), which strives to “to improve the products, practices and services used to manage water resources and to contribute to the global improvement of the environment,” took advantage of the last EIMA tradeshow in Bologna, Italy, to hold its 2014 EIA Awards ceremony.
The objective was to “recognize and promote the irrigation industry’s most innovative products or services for environmental sustainability." The contest was open to all companies that built innovative products, equipment, sites, projects or designs that promote water and energy savings.
It was also the time when the General Assembly elected its new board members.
We are glad to say that they can count on a new member: Philipp Schmidt-Holzmann, general manager of Valmont Irrigation Western Europe and West Africa, who has joined the EIA board for three years. Congratulations Philipp on your new challenge!
