Eureka Clusters Sustainability Call 2022 projects
Innovations making industry more sustainable and greener
In 2022, the Eureka network together with the Clusters launched the Eureka Clusters Sustainability Call 2022. The Call was jointly implemented between the Eureka Clusters CELTIC-NEXT, EUROGIA, ITEA, SMART and Xecs, and the Eureka Public Authorities of Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
At the deadline 15 project proposals were received, ultimately resulting in 11 labelled projects involving 482 PY and 68 partners from 14 countries. The most represented countries are Türkiye (nine projects), Portugal (six projects) and Belgium (four projects). ITEA is the primary Cluster for four projects and a secondary Cluster for four additional ones. With a representation of 65% of the total effort, SMEs are the main contributors to this Call. Large industry covers 16% of the effort, followed by universities with 11%.
The projects of the Sustainability Call 2022 cover many themes:
|Theme||Eureka Clusters Sustainability Call 2022 - projects|
|Circular economy||AgAPP-e, NRPCES, RETAILL|
|Sustainable logistics and supply chain management||Resource2Tab, RETAILL|
|Green ICT||DefectFree, iDT4GDC|
|Sustainable manufacturing||DefectFree, SMCMSSPPA|
|Renewable energy||ONE, Valkyrie|
|Distributed intelligence and low data transmission||RETAILL|
|Earth, Ocean, Space observation systems and exploitation||UAV-GG,|
|Power electronics and management||ONE|
We invite you to discover the innovative solutions related to ITEA.

AgAPP-e: Agriculture’s digital Analyser of Production, for Phosphorus efficiency
For improved production and environmental protection, fertiliser management needs to be local or site-specific; depending on the regional metabolism, agricultural efficiency can be increased even fourfold if the flows and stocks are well-observed. Digital solutions will greatly improve the management of such essential resources, but these are currently missing, leaving the farmer without simple tools capable of providing targeted diagnoses for targeted treatments. AgAPP-e aims to automate fertiliser recommendations and thereby improve accuracy and increase the phosphorus efficiencies of a nation.
REtail using Technology based on Artificial InteLLigence
Polytechnic Institute of Porto (Portugal)
Fresh food quality and safety products are a challenge for the retail sector, in particular for perishable foods that are stored for long periods, spoiling quickly. In view of this, we want to develop a smart system that can allow a cost-efficient supply chain providing alternatives to improve the food life cycle and sustainability.
Agro Insurance Data Management Platform with API Services
SFS Danışmanlık Bilgi İşlem San. ve Dış Tic. A.Ş (Türkiye)
Agricultural insurance is a global, fast-growing billion-dollar industry and, due to the effects of climate change, it is becoming more important every day. Effective insurance policies stabilise farm income, reduce poverty and ensure a climate safety net for food producers. SmartAgroInsurance aims to develop a Smart Agriculture Insurance Data Management Platform to provide, analyse and integrate agricultural data from different sources with insurance industry know-how so that insurance companies can achieve better premium calculations, claim automation and fraud prevention and provide supportive, damage-preventing advice to the farmer.
Intelligent Digital Twin Platform for Climate-Neutral Data Centres
In this project, we aim to develop our award-winning artificial intelligence (AI) and digital twin (DT) technologies into a cloud AI platform to digitalize, optimize and automate data center operations for sustainability purpose. We will adopt the EU climate neutral data center pact as our reference framework to guide data centre operations and management in five thrusts, including power, carbon, water, circular economy and governance, towards a sustainable future.

Machine learning and artificial vision for 0% waste textile production
With the aim of reducing defective textiles to close to 0%, this proposal intends to develop a new system based on artificial intelligence, machine learning, and computer vision that, once installed into circular knitting machines, can detect defects in complex fabrics in real-time during production. The economic and environmental benefits of this proposal are evident, being that the textile industry is one of the largest in the world, as well as one of the most polluting.
Integrated Resource Management Platform for Water Distribution System
An integrated monitoring system will be developed to prevent water losses and indirect energy losses in urban water distribution systems, and to optimize the energy consumption of the distribution system. The water leakage prevention system will offer hardware and software solutions to be developed for the detection of technical losses in the water distribution network and an end-to-end monitoring system. Resource2tap will develop a product with high commercialization potential that will prevent technical losses with an IoT-based endpoint monitoring system and a conventional neural network-based data analysis software.
Saw Machine that Can Make Smart and Sustainable Production with Prediction Algorithms
Beka-Mak Makina Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. (Türkiye)
Sawing machines used to bring the raw material to the desired dimensions in industrial production companies are of great importance since they are at the beginning of the production line and they have a great effect on the production efficiency. In this framework, it is aimed to manufacture sawing machines with smart and sustainable production techniques, which automatically optimizes the cutting parameters (cutting speed, surface quality…) with the data to be collected from the field and provides error and life cycle estimation on machine equipment.
Monitoring Greenhouse Gases with Long-Range Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Novel Spectroscopic Sensors
Romaeris Corporation (Canada)
The project will use novel long-range, large-payload Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to carry innovative spectroscopic sensors to monitor multiple greenhouse gases (GHGs) over large geographic areas, locate emissions sources, take action, and vastly improve our understanding of GHG emissions. A data portal will be created to make such GHG information available for governments and industry worldwide, and the data will be made compatible with other sources of information such as satellites so that comprehensive and accurate GHG reporting is at last possible.
