We are delighted to have been selected for EIT Food’s “Water Scarcity in South” project: EIT Food is Europe’s leading food innovation initiative, working to make the food system more sustainable, healthy and trusted.

EIT Food, established by the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT), is building an inclusive and innovative community of diverse food sector partners, to drive innovation and entrepreneurship across Europe.

The objective of this programme is to enhance knowledge and overcome current barriers to tackle water scarcity in Southern Europe through innovation, entrepreneurship, education and communication.

Water is a precondition to life on Earth and essential for a sustainable socioeconomic development, food security and healthy ecosystems. The growing population, the demographic changes, massive urbanisation trends and climate change, among other factors, are increasing pressure over the available water resources.

This programme carries out a series of activities, from research to innovation and education, to joint efforts and effectively find the appropriate solutions to water shortages in Southern regions, for Europe to lead the way towards a more sustainable future.

Our contribution? We have made our platform available to the project, eg the fastest and easiest solution to create and manage geospatial analysis applications to take crucial decisions.

Our data analytics platform is based on satellite images and artificial intelligence, providing understandable data that lead to decisions that are economically sound and sustainable.

Thanks to a flexible, zero-code approach, Latitudo 40 offers a new way to create, deploy and scale geospatial applications, improving life on our planet and helping to achieve Sustainable Development Goals.

Thanks to our effort, the programme will strengthen local innovations and will contribute to the economic and social progress in modest and moderated innovation countries as sufficient and good-quality water supply is a prerequisite for socioeconomic development.
