The European event H2020 has been organized by the European Commission. During it, the main requirements will be set out for participating in the European calls H2020-SC5-2018-2019-2020 published on 27 October within Societal Challenge 5: Climate action, Environment, Resource efficiency and Raw Materials.
SICE’s R+D Department is assessing the opportunity to develop an H2020 proposal in which the company may provide the technology developed for the control and management of Automatic Hydrological Information Systems (AHIS) or river basins, in collaboration with other companies in the group, such as Ofiteco. The possibility is therefore being analyzed of establishing collaborations with other European partners in different institutions, in order to generate additional services and/or products that may add improvements to the AHISs based on the data provided by the Earth observation programme Copernicus, the purpose of which is focused on providing accurate, up-to-date and easily-accessible information to improve the management of the environment, to understand and mitigate the effects of climate change and to guarantee the safety and security of the citizenry.
