Technical feasibility study to evaluate the application of disruptive technologies in the water subsector.

The IoT-IA CWP project aims to analyze how the application of the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) can allow overcoming defined challenges in the water subsector.

The beneficiary sector will be the Comprehensive Water Cycle Exploitation Services, which encompasses several points in the value chain and opens up the possibility of incorporating these technologies that will improve current decision-making and monitoring systems.

Other goals of the project are to:

  • Submit 2 R&D projects in regional, national or European financing lines, based on the preliminary definition of 7 project proposals linked to disruptive technologies.
  • Generate specific knowledge focused on specific problems in relation to the application of disruptive technologies in the water sector, which can serve as a reference for the entities associated with the Catalonian Water Partnership (CWP).
  • Facilitate the transfer of knowledge towards the representatives of the water sector (understood as consumers of the product or technologies) and the supply sectors, related to the two identified technologies.

Eurecat participates in the project through its Applied Artificial Intelligence Unit, as experts in AI and IoT applied to the water sector, and the Water, Air and Soil Unit, as experts in water and domain technologies.
