RainMaker is committed to mitigate severe droughts and bring additional freshwater in an environmental friendly way to Hundreds of Millions of people.
RainMaker's partner, WeatherTec has developed an unique technology to initiate and enhance rainfalls even in semi-arid regions making it the world’s largest additional fresh water reservoir. It is a green leading- edge technology for more natural precipitation, just by mimicking the sun’s ionization process.
Professor Wilderer has developed and demonstrated a profoundly holistic vision of sustainable and integrated water and wastewater management.
The hallmarks of Professor Wilderer’s research are a rare combination of detailed technology development and a deep concern for the environment and human quality of life.
For his outstanding scientific contribution in the water sector, His Royal Highness, King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden awarded Prof. Wilderer the "Stockholm Water Prize", the so-called "Water Nobel Prize" in 2003.
Prof. Wilderer still dedicates his scientific work to the effective use of water, as well as to the creation and preservation of a healthy water cycle. He personally was an observer of projects in Australia and the UAE.
Peter Wilderer is Co-Founder of IESP, an EASA-Institute for Advanced Studies on Earth System Preservation, searching for solutions to cross-boundary environmental crises. He is member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, an association of 31 Nobel Price Laureates and over 2000 eminent scientists.
Prof. Wilderer is Professor Emeritus of Excellence for Water Quality and Waste Management at the TU Munich. He is founding member of the European Water Partnership (EWP).
Prof. Dr. Anton Mangstl is an agricultural scientist and is a specialist in agrarian informatics and knowledge management.
Examples of his breakthrough projects are the development of the information system for plant cultivation (ISPLANZ), the development of planning and forecasting models and is the founder of the Society for Computer Science in Agriculture (GIL).
Prof. Mangstl was Director of the Center for Agricultural Documentation and Information (ZADI), the knowledge and technology transfer agency of the German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection.
As FAO Deputy Director of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations he was responsible for information and knowledge management, e-learning and capacity building.

Professor Dr. Jörg Imberger was Professor of Environmental Engineering at the University of Western Australia, Perth and Chair of its Centre for Water Research. He is an avid environmentalist who is also a member of the Scientific Advisory Board for Earthwatch.
1996 he received the "Stockholm Water Prize", also known as "Water Nobel Prize". Jörg Imberger is seen as a landmark in the research focused on water movements in rivers, lakes and coastal regions. The most respectful commentators talk about "before and after Imberger."
Imberger is a leading figure of the "Adcademy for Climate and Water Security". Imberger received many awards and honors for his services to science and is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science (FAA), the Academy of Science of Argentina, the Institute of Engineers, Australia (FIEAust) and of the Water Academy. Since 1969 he has worked on over 200 different research projects and has had more than 300 (co-) authored publications.

Dr. Helmut Fluhrer
When Helmut saw the first documentation and presentation of the roots of the rainmaking technology in 2004, he realized that this concept would become the most important mission in his life.
Already successful in building big companies from scratch in the media world, creating technology leaders in satellite television and digital editing/ printing companies.
He especially built starting 1993 one of the first b-to-b in the Internet, he took on the task of further launching a company for rainmaking.
During its seven years of fieldwork, Meteo developed most valuable know how and IP, which positioned the team as the technology leaders. After an intermission, caused by fundamental research work, restructuring and new strategic orientation, Fluhrer relaunched the Company in spring 2015.
As one of the world’s leading experts on weather modification, Elena brings the depth of scientific and technical know-how necessary for the implementation of Weathertec’s state-of-the-art data sciences architecture which consists of atmospheric mega data collection, processing complex data analytics AI platform and algorithms for rainmaking.
She supervises the mobilization and execution of WeatherTec projects world-wide as well as managing scientists and engineers in the R&D department.
She has authored several technical and scientific articles on atmospheric humidity and weather modification including two articles which she has co-authored with Stockholm Water Laureate Prof. Peter Wilderer, Technical University (TU) Munich which have been citied globally:
1) "Abstraction of Atmospheric Humidity" published in the Chapter "Water-Quality Engineering", "Treatise of Water Science", ELSEVIER, 2011.
2) “Risking Weather Engineering: Fiction or Contribution to Conflict Prevention?” which is one of the key chapters on weather modification and artificial reforestation in the book “Sustainable Risk Management” published by Springer International Publishing - Germany’s largest scientific publishing house. (2018)
With a unique insight and vision of identifying new technologies, she has collaborated with respected experts around the globe for enhancement of freshwater enlargement by various technical means.
Elena also founded the WeatherTec Academy for Water and Climate Security in 2016, which provides Advanced Executive Courses for high governmental authorities in Arab and African countries taught by German and Swiss professors.
She also participated in highly technical technology transfer negotiations between military, civil, and scientific blocs concerning declassification of military know-how, IP and equipment into commercial sector in Europe and USA.
She has a Master degree from St.-Petersburg University, Russia with further studies abroad and lecturer’s career at the G.C. Marshall Centre for Security Studies, Germany, specialising in the field of disarmament.
Has responsibility for RainMaker’s funding and has been affiliated with the team of WeatherTec since 2008 and financing its business expansion worldwide.
