The WaterInnEU Marketplace was launched at the end of October 2016 and since then has been providing information, access and training for innovative products and services of specific relevance to River Basin Management. The Marketplace facilitates the market translation of innovations coming from previously EU funded initiatives and offers support services to raise awareness amongst River Basin Managers, their supply chains and stakeholders. It is a match making hub where you can find commercially available products and services, developers seeking collaborators for market deployment, and open source models.
We would like to welcome you to join the next 2nd Marketplace E-Pitch Event on February 7th 2017 at 13.00 (UK time). In a 1 hour web-based session, short presentations will be made by product developers, who have newly joined our platform. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and receive answers directly from the product developers themselves:
CORES-A1 – A solar driven unmanned survey vessel, equipped with navigation & measurement equipment; managed remotely from the shore and transmitting data in real time. The station provides cost-effective sampling and direct measurement of coastal zone and inland aquatic environments, including hard-to-reach locations.
Stage of development: Seeking first customers and co-funding for phase 2 development. License / Copyright: Free and open source. Product Owner: CORES Ltd.
REFRAN-CV – Software that enables time series processing, using precipitation data from ground meteorological stations, to estimate extreme climate events by generating spatially-explicit products, such as return period maps. The software is particular relevant for regions where the availability and quality of precipitation data is limited.
Stage of development: Seeking co-funding. License / Copyright: Free and open source. Product Owner: Joint Research Centre.
DPR 25 & DPR 60 – Small scale river turbines composed of twin, multi-bladed, vertical axis turbines mounted on either side of a buoyant deployment vessel. The shape of the vessel accelerates the flow of water into the turbine, which allows for significant energy to be generated in low flows.
Stage of development: Pre-commercialised looking for development partners. License / Copyright: Proprietary. Product Owner: GKinetic.
Smart Water – software for automatically monitoring at real-time physical, chemical parameters, detecting/analyzing anomalous events and unexpected patterns, and supporting decision makers. It is designed to improve the efficiency of water networks by automatically detecting/localizing anomalies such as leaks, transients, faults, and assisting maintenance, but it can be easily applied also to water quality, irrigation, and flood monitoring.
Stage of development: Seeking technological partners, early adopters and financial support to build a full pilot for market uptake. License / Copyright: Proprietary. Product Owner: Sense4Green srls.
