We make available our expertise and know-how in the development of innovative and advanced ICT sensors to be employed in the water management area. The goal of the proposed solutions is to promote the efficiency, modernization and competitiveness of the farms and regional organizations utilizing and managing the water resource.
Our services include the realization, validation and demonstration in field of prototypes characterized by low energy consumption, low production and maintenance costs, and high automation level. The stand alone and connected sensors aim to monitor the water flows within irrigation and drainage channels for agricultural use and/or instantaneous measurement of water (e.g. pressure, temperature, turbidity, electrical conductivity) and weather (e.g. air humidity, wind and direction speed, atmospheric pressure) parameters. All the sensors are remote controlled, and data can be transmitted in real-time to cloud computing services.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
The Laboratory for Nuclear Technologies Applied to the Environment of the Department of Physics and Earth Sciences (University of Ferrara, Italy) has a strong expertise in environmental monitoring, decision support system development, and hardware and software development, with particular focus on the remote control of sensors for multiparametric acquisition.
Our research group is currently participating in several research project funded by national and international entities. We are experienced in proposal preparation for PRIMA calls.
Topic 1.1.1-2021 (RIA) Sustainable soil and water management for combating land degradation and desertification and promoting ecosystem restoration.
Topic 1.2.1-2021 (IA) Increasing the environmental and socio-economic performance of small scale farming systems through improvements in organisational aspects and new value chain governance models.
Topic 2.1.1 (RIA) Alleviating Mediterranean water scarcity through adaptive water governance.
Topic 2.2.1 (RIA) Up-scaling field practices based on agroecological practices to increase ecosystem services and biodiversity, to adapt the small farming systems to climate change and to increase farmers incomes
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.
