GEOexplorer Impresa Sociale S.r.l. is interested in cooperating to develop and test new monitoring strategies (eg. airborne and monitoring network realized following the paradigm of "industry 4.0") to be applied in precision agriculture and evaluate the quali-quantitative status of water resources.
As environmental company mainly involved in aquifer exploration and quality assessment we have contacts with several water utilities and stakes holders (mainly in central Italy) which could participate as case studies in the Mediterranean.
