In the past years, our 3 NAIADES pilots have been busy developing innovative smart water management solutions to respond to the pressing challenges related to water in the city. Through a series of brief interviews, we catch up with the pilots representatives on the progress of their work and the lessons learned so far.

In this interview, we checked in with Ignacio Casals, from the Alicante Pilot:


Konnektable Technologies Ltd, the Irish technology R&D company, continues its exemplary work by breaking new ground on the operational and management tools for the NAIADES project.

At this stage our research and development scientists proceed to the implementation of NAIADES Front End Functionalities and the Advanced Human-Machine-Interfaces by redesigning the existing pilot homepages as well as by developing new pages per user case.

Location-based data has become a critical part of our everyday lives. Under smart city initiatives, administrators are constantly looking for better solutions to distribute city-related datasets as a part of their Open Data initiatives.

Commissioner for Internal Market, Thierry Breton, said: “We are defining today a truly European approach to data sharing. Our new regulation will enable trust and facilitate the flow of data across sectors and Member States while putting all those who generate data in the driving seat. With the ever-growing role of industrial data in our economy, Europe needs an open yet sovereign Single Market for data.

AIMEN’s development of AI services to provide and/or support water management solutions within the NAIADES platform has concluded. The NAIADES project aims to create a holistic platform for water management in urban areas. An interoperable, modular, scalable and secure cloud platform has been designed within the project, and it is currently on development and testing under the called ‘NAIADES Development platform (Dev)’.

Weather forecasting is one of the things that had human minds in constant wonder. Probably since before even societies were structured. Weather had, and still has, a prominent effect in our everyday lives and dictates a large part of it. And it has a broad range of impact as well. A light breeze might make us carry a sweater “just in case”, while a thunderstorm might force us to reschedule and stay inside (and binge-watch a series instead).

As part of the NAIADES water consumption awareness and behavioral change support hub, the Information Management Unit (IMU) of ICCS is implementing a bundle of innovative services that enhance public awareness on water consumption and usage savings, promote user engagement and enhance user participation in water conservation activities.
