ALMANAC presented at Water Ideas 2014

Partners Telecom Italia  presented ALMANAC at the Water Ideas Conference on 22-24 October 2014 in Bologna. The conference was a good opportunity for ICT companies and utilities to meet and start collaborating. 

User perspectives on waste and water

How are waste and water handled in the City of Turin today? What are the key challenges and how do you envision the future? Knowledge of existing city structures, services and challenges is crucial when developing sustainable Smart City solutions. Drawing on both existing knowledge from other projects and new insights, partners have gained a strong sense of the Turin context and challenges when it comes to handling waste and water.

Collaborating with state of the art

ALMANAC has met with the SmartSantander project to share knowledge and look for possible areas of collaboration. The first result is a live traffic data connection between the first ALMANAC prototype and the Santander Platform. 

The ALMANAC project is co-funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 609081, objective ICT-2013.1.4 'A reliable, smart and secure Internet of Things for Smart Cities'. Duration: 1st September 2013 to 31st August 2016.
