We are interested in joining, as a partner, a project addressing the issue of groundwater management and water scarcity. We are looking to use Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to build a Smart Water Management (SWM) system that provides real-time metering, water quality/quantity monitoring and efficient irrigation solution.
We make our renewable energy infrastructure and a piece of land of one hectare available for our partners to test the targeted sustainable groundwater management solution.
We believe that our expertise in renewable energies and smart systems (IoT, Smart Grids, etc.), in addition to the available infrastructure, would help us contribute efficiently to the success of the project.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
The multidisciplinary research team of LARINA covers diverse fields of expertise. LaRINA’s activities are seeking to explore, acquire and implement innovative technologies and techniques to optimize industrial processes, promote sustainable and fair management of energy and water services. Moreover, recent advances in numerical modeling of Internet of Things (IoT) have created new topics of interest for our team which include the following: digitization of the energy and water systems, Artificial Intelligence and numerical modeling for smart cities and adaptive algorithms for home automation.
ENSTAB/LaRINA is a member of the “Mediterranean Network of Engineering Schools” (RMEI) and the UNEVOC/UNESCO networks. Different cooperation agreements have already been signed with industrials, universities and NGOs operating in the energy and water management and industrial digitalization. LARINA is well-equipped with appropriate testing and a wide range of appropriate measurement equipment and software.
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
