Waternomics uses a holistic approach considering all the stages of water usage. On a hardware level, new sensor technology for leakage detection and measuring water flows will be combined with existing infrastructure. Collected data will be combined and made available to various applications, each targeted at a specific user group. A methodology will be developed to help water managers with the implementation of a water information system and new designed business models will ensure sustainable project results.
Project results will be validated in three different pilots:
- Linate Airport near Milan
- Municipality of Thermi in Greece
- School and university in Galway, Ireland
