Nov 02 2021


The ‘Water Scarcity’ programme, promoted by the EIT, awards 30,000 euros to each of the three winners to carry out a ‘demo’ with their technologies in real cases.

Agrow Analytics will develop in Spain its solutions for irrigation optimising the use of water. Fibsen, which works with intelligent fibre optic sensors to monitor water management in real time, will apply its technology in Greece. And Bluephage, from the bio sector, will use its bacteriophage analysis in an infrastructure in Italy.

The winners of the international ‘Water Scarcity’ programme to find innovative solutions to water scarcity in southern Europe have been announced. The initiative is coordinated by EIT Food, with the participation of EIT Climate-KIC, EIT Digital and EIT Manufacturing, together with other partners such as Athena Research and Bioazul.

After the 20 selected companies have been working since July on three different challenges (procurement, infrastructure and agriculture), the competitions, called Innowise Scale, have ended with three Spanish companies selected for the implementation of a ‘demo’ in a real environment. These companies are: Agrow Analytics, Fibsen and Bluephage, and each of them will receive €30,000.
