SMS at the EIP Water: What a success!!!

Le 23 02 2016

Our team attended the 2016 EIP Water Conference in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands. The event provided a thought-provoking and pragmatic exchange about innovation and how innovation partnerships in general, and specifically in the water sector, are progressing in Europe.

The main outcomes of the conference was the Leeuwarden declaration which presents key findings and a European innovation action agenda that address the urgent need to accelerate the development and uptake of innovation. The declaration calls upon European governments, research institutions and universities, the private sector, industry, development and investment banks, donors, river basin organizations, water and energy/gas associations, multi- and bilateral institutions, community-based organizations, local and regional authorities and all other stakeholders to commit to the actions and recommendations of the declaration in order to accelerate innovation development in the water sector and removal of innovation barriers in Europe and beyond.

 

CTRL+SWAN - Cloud Technologies & ReaL time monitoring + Smart WAter Network

Our partners Luca Sanfillipo from SYSTEA attended the CTRL+SWAN meeting where he presented “Best Available Technologies for real time water quality monitoring of chemical parameters” and presented our latest SMS development.

CTRL+SWAN is an action group of the EIP water which aims to:

# promote and develop innovative smart sensors to be placed on distribution network for online detection of microbiological and/or physical-chemical parameters

# Design decision support systems to define optimal partitioning of SWAN to improve management and protection of water supply systems

# Implementation of smart platform to collect and manage data from sensors in an early warning system based on cloud technologies. It will be based on multi-sourced and cloud data platforms including quality and quantity monitoring

 

To do so, the action group has the following strategy:

# Strengthen current relationships and generate new ones

# Looking for funds to partners through applications to European calls (H2020)

# Design and optimize a really innovative interaction model that can represent a truly best practice # Design road maps

# Transform R&D results into powerful engineered products/services and solutions

 

Microbia Environnement, finalist to the “EIP Water’s Got Talent” session

“EIP Water’s Got Talent” was designed to make it easier than ever for innovators to connect with investors, partners and end users in a fun and interactive way.
Carmen-Lara Manes, our SMS partner from Microbia, was selected as a finalist and pitched “DIALGOX_COLOR”, a predictive monitoring of harmful algal blooms innovation, to an audience of over 550 conference participants and an expert panel consisting of Dr Reinhard Hübner from Skion GmbH, Diane D'arras from Suez and Cees Buisman from wetsus.

You can also watch Carmen’s interview by the EIP Water on technology addressing microbial contamination of water resources.

SMS will show its instrumental prototypes at Oceanology International!

Round Table Session - What can the Ocean of Tomorrow projects do for you?

The aim of the ‘The Ocean of Tomorrow 2013’ call was to pool the efforts of stakeholders from a broad range of sectors in order to develop innovative marine technologies for a wide range of applications. The call covers three key areas: marine sensing technologies (including biosensors), innovative antifouling materials, and innovative transport and deployment systems for the offshore wind energy sector.
This session is intended as a discussion on how we can use our efforts in conjunction with research and Industry, to address the needs of you, the stakeholders.
