Partnering opportunity

Portuguese company offers a precise monitoring technology for aquaculture systems. Commercial agreements and technical cooperation agreements are sought.

Summary

Portuguese company is specialized in enabling precision aquaculture with underwater sensors, satellite data and numerical models that deliver data in real-time to the cloud. The SME is looking for universities, research centers or environmental centers interested in the technology offered. Commercial agreements and technical cooperation agreements are sought.

Partner sought

The Portuguese company is looking for universities, R&D centers and environmental centers that wish to develop projects in the aquaculture or environmental area. The type of partnership sought are: - Commercial agency with technical assistance for entities developing projects with an interest in acquiring the technology and incorporating into their systems. - Technical cooperation agreement with universities and R&D centers with interest in study ways to improve the technology, realizing which are the features that can be incorporated.

Description

Portuguese company enables precision aquaculture. The solution allows users to monitor and predict water quality changes, without dealing with sensors maintenance. The company developed a compact and easy to install in-situ water data acquisition system and a user-friendly cloud platform combined with Earth Observation Data products (EOD) and predictive models, which enables the spread of precision aquaculture projects in a large scale. The solution is composed by the following value layers and correspondent technologies: Real-time water quality data (in-situ acquisition system), managing tools (data fusion & web services)” and early warnings (predictive models). The core parameters measured are: Water quality: Temperature; pH; Dissolved oxygen; ORP; Conductivity/Salinity; Turbidity; Chlorophyll-a At the cloud dashboard the user is be able to get easy access to several parameters and features as the following: Check water parameters in real-time; Define alerts, faults and insights; Review historical data of water quality; View dynamic maps of water data; Validation and calibration of both space data and forecast models against in-situ data; Automated decision-making tools based on early warnings. The system can be installed on boats (ships of opportunity), buoys and aquaculture cages. The technology developed has the support of the European Space Agency and has been supported by Norwegian entities through projects whose objective is the development of solutions with a positive impact on marine environments. The SME seeks universities, R&D centers and environmental centers that wish to develop projects in the aquaculture or environmental area in the field of integration and validation of space data and numerical models against in-situ water data. Commercial agency with technical assistance and technical cooperation agreement are sought.

Advantages and innovations

Main benefits of using the technology: - Easy to install: easy to adapt to any existent platform, such as aquaculture cages, buoys, or boats. The technology is incorporated in a box which is composed by a plug-and-play system and 3G/ Satellite Communication (SATCOM communication). - Improved predictability: allows to be aware of sudden changes in water parameters, especially when there are sudden water quality changes - continuous monitoring. - Real-time alerts: specific alerts, faults and insights for water parameters sent through notification messages by web platform, e-mail and/or SMS. - Support decision making: move from a reactive to a preventive decision-making approach regarding water quality monitoring - Standardization: allows the integration of different data sources and different numerical models. The technology can be applied not only to the aquaculture area, but also to earth observation and environmental monitoring.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
