  13. 13. @WATERNOMICS_ www.waternomics.eu13 EARLY CONCLUSIONS CONCLUSION COMMENT High Profile Display of Current Water Usage Number Very Effective Creating significant discussion and commentary from staff and students are aware of scale of volume Managers are interested in concept and outputs of information but difficult to prioritise above emergency issues Ensure that access to dashboard and information is as easy as possible – desktop icon/ weekly update At NUIG encouraging interactions with interactive screen challenging screen not identifiable to users as interactive Design changes to give visual prompt that screen is interactive being trialled Consider water usage as Operation or System controlled and User controlled Behavioural change in staff and students may be overshadowed Water awareness baselines revealed high scores May be difficult to increase awareness result from high baseline
