Data pooling for municipal water management (Smart Services World I technology programme)

The goal of "KOMMUNAL 4.0" is to develop a data and service platform for municipal infrastructures using the example of water management. Existing data from cities and municipalities is to be collected, evaluated and used for a holistic management of sewer networks, rainwater basins and sewage treatment plants. The project develops business models that enable the effective planning and efficient operation of municipal infrastructure systems.
