The 'Zero Power Water Infrastructure Monitoring' Inducement Prize seeks to empower the EU water distribution market with solutions based on wireless sensor networks using energy harvesting technologies, designed for real-time monitoring of water management. It also seeks to stimulate broader European efforts in developing solutions for this societal need. Inducement prizes are cash rewards awarded to whoever can most effectively meet a defined challenge.
Prizes will be awarded to working prototypes for wireless sensor networks based on energy harvesting technologies, designed to efficiently acquire, monitor, communicate and analyse information about water resources in natural or man-made environments.
Opening date: 19 December 2017
