The European Commission has launched the Zero Power Water Monitoring Horizon Prize, inviting European innovators to come up with solutions based on self-powered and wireless smart sensing technologies, designed for real-time monitoring of water resources.

The € 2 million prize will be awarded through the EU’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

This is the fourth ICT-based Horizon Prize and it will be awarded to the best solution that will succeed putting together wireless sensors using harvesting technologies and demonstrate the positive impact of using self-powered energy in acquiring, monitoring, communicating and analysing information about water resources.
