  11. 11. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu11 MARKETPLACE + METHODOLOGY Collaborative exploitation by ULTRA4 & R2M • Developing new proposition based on Marketplace and Methodology • Offered on a Smart Water as a Service basis, • Targeting industries and public buildings in southern Europe • Looking for funding for commercialisation proposition +
  12. 12. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu12 ACOUSTIC LEAK DETECTION Follow up research by UNESCO-IHE & TU-DELFT • Further research on microphone and analytical software • Use of fingerprinting techniques for tracking of water appliances • Test in different environments • Partner VTEC interested in research results (low cost sensor)
  13. 13. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu13 SMART BUILDING PLATFORM Smart building platform • Waternomics sensors and applications basis for collaboration Simaxx • Integration of Waternomics applications in Simaxx’s smart building platform • Pilot defined with S-Clusiv business centre in the Netherlands • Looking for funding commercialisation activities +
  14. 14. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu14 IOT-PLATFORM Spin-off company iSENSIT • IoT platform technical basis for iSensit, a spin-off from VTEC • Platform extended with additional sensors (accelerometers, gyroscopes, temperature, humidity… ) • New propositions for fitness and health of working force • Currently 8 FTE working for iSensit
  16. 16. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu16 CONCLUSION Waternomics showed that a Smart Water System does create end-user value There is no one size fits all solution. Context matters. Value propositions and business models need to be designed specifically for selected target customer groups. Project results are basis for follow-up research and new business initiatives
