Impact and capacity Assessment Framework for U-space societal Acceptance

Project Ambition

ImAFUSA is set to unlock groundbreaking insights into three key areas that influence societal acceptance of UAM:

  1. Environmental Impact: Tackling issues such as noise, visual pollution, and air quality head-on.
  2. Safety: Ensuring that UAM becomes a synonym for safety, instilling confidence in every citizen.
  3. Socio-Economic Impact: Making UAM accessible, affordable, and contributing to economic development while optimising public space use and connectivity.

In order to measure the above, ImAFUSA is pioneering the creation of mathematical formulas and algorithms to quantify innovative performance indicators. This approach will contribute to the designation of Sustainable Urban Air Mobility Indicators (SUAMI) empowering stakeholders to make more informed, responsible, sustainable and socially accepted decisions.

How does Future Needs participate?

Future Needs leads the dissemination activities and the activities for development of socioeconomic impact assessment indicators. Additionally, Future Needs leads the Setting the Scene for UAM assessment Work Package. This work package has the following objectives:

  • Review of current impact and capacity assessment frameworks and indicators for UAM, transport and mobility services

Reducing Environmental Footprint through transformative Multi-scale Aviation Planning

Project Motivation

In today’s world that climate change is a major threat, the need to assess and minimise the environmental impact of our activities become evident. Aviation is a major contributor to the emitted greenhouse gases and the rapid rising of urban air mobility will only add to this problem. For this reason, there is a need to create a management system that will optimise trajectories. Optimising trajectories will not only help reduce the environmental footprint of aviation and urban air mobility, but also will have a financial benefit. At the same time, while more and more vehicles move through the air, the impact of the noise they produce, on both community and wildlife remains understudied. Both for emissions and noise, the natural air flows play also a big part.  RefMap aims to address these issues through the development of a transformative digital technology platform that allows quantifying the environmental footprints associated with multi-scale aviation using big data and AI.

How does Future Needs participate?

Future Needs leads the following activities:

  • Project Branding, Dissemination and Communication activities
  • Clustering with relevant projects and ATM/U-space stakeholders

Future Needs also leads the “Development of the RefMap services and the new European businesses they enable” work package which aims to:

  • Validate the potential of RefMap analytics, simulations and platform and define the MVP based on user needs
  • Define and validate the new business models that the RefMap analytics will enable
https://futureneeds.eu/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/Refmap_grp_edited-scaled-e1679304471525.jpg

Project Ambition

RefMap aims to revolutionise the aviation industry by developing a comprehensive approach to improving air traffic management, reducing environmental footprint, and assessing and minimising the noise impact of drones on communities and wildlife. The project utilises cutting-edge technologies, including deep learning techniques, HPC auto-tuning, and GPU acceleration, to accurately predict flow patterns, optimise drone trajectories, and conduct high-fidelity simulations. To ensure ethical data acquisition, the project also prioritises cyber security and decentralised data management.

Beyond technology, RefMap also has a holistic view of aviation business models and aims to align aviation needs with stakeholders’ needs to extrapolate the business value of green technology. By promoting green management practices, RefMap demonstrates how green technologies can benefit all aviation stakeholders, from airlines and airports to communities and wildlife. RefMap’s ambition extends beyond developing an air quality model; it also includes developing a flight dynamic model that can handle high-density aircraft scenarios, optimising commercial flight trajectories to reduce environmental impact, and minimising the impact of drone noise on populated areas through noise generation and perception optimization. The project also seeks to create a drone noise impact assessment approach for wildlife and provide guidelines to minimise the impact of drone noise on both communities and wildlife.

RefMap use cases

RefMap tool will have an impact on the service offer of aviation operators active in the large scale, such as airlines and small scale, such as drone operators. This tool will enable the provision of new and environmentally-optimal services in the small scale and the optimisation of current aircraft operations. The stakeholders involved and benefited from the outcomes of RefMap are: airlines, drone operators, airports, regulators and policy-makers. The services that are envisioned to be enabled through our technology in the RefMap project are briefly described in the following use cases:

  • Use cases in large scale (airlines and airports)
  • Use cases in small scale (urban air mobility)

Funding

The funding of the project comes from Horizon Europe.

HPC and Big Data Technologies for Global Challenges

Project Objectives

HiDALGO2 will concentrate on the following conceptual aspects:

  1. Technological
  2. Multidisciplinary
  3. Socio-scientific
  4. Teamworking

They are extremely important to follow the work programme and fulfil general recommendations. HiDALGO2 is going to implement a rich set of functionalities, services, model adaptations, co-design benchmarks as well as actively work on establishing collaboration with other projects, initiatives and communities. In order to achieve the relevant impact for the project and measure its success, four above-mentioned categories have been detailed by a set of specific objectives.

Project Ambition and Novelty

The goals and ambitions of the HiDALGO2 project go far beyond the current state of knowledge and application possibilities, exploring areas that have not been explored so far. Thanks to HiDALGO2, it will be possible to make a qualitative change allowing us to look at the current state of knowledge of the analysed problems from a new perspective. Through the progress achieved in the project, we expect a qualitative leap in terms of scale, resolution and accuracy of the results obtained. This can be compared to using a microscope with much higher magnification to study extremely small organisms. Something that was previously invisible to the researcher suddenly becomes available and allows you to understand the essence of things.

How does Future Needs participate?

Future Needs contributes in the following Work Packages of the HiDALGO2:

  • Project Management
  • Centre Operation, Dashboard and Service Offering

On top of that, we lead the Work Package “Outreach, Awareness and Impact Creation”. Work package’s objective is oriented on maximizing the impact of the project and ensuring proper communication and dissemination of the project results/offerings and subsequently to raise awareness to the scientific and societal stakeholders. Another key aspect is to ensure the sustainability of the project results once the project is over in correlation with the individual and joint exploitation intentions of the partners. A key objective of this work package is on community building activities, which already started successfully in HiDALGO, but will be significantly expanded in the successor project, e.g. through a dedicated EU Clustering event. With respect to training activities, the goal is to build a centre for knowledge, experience and expertise exchanging ideas on development of novel/adapted solutions to tackle Global Challenges and to further advance the uptake of Exascale in this domain at European scale.

Thus, this work package will spread the knowledge on efficient utilisation of relevant implementation methods and deployment on current and future HPC and AI infrastructures.

Maturity of the Proposed Solution

The potential of scalability is diverse across use cases. The first reason for this is that they come from different fields and are based on completely different computational models. Secondly, they also use various frameworks to conduct calculations, which translates into achieved results. The level of maturity is different, resulting either from the development time or the resources devoted. Most importantly, all pilot applications have great potential for scalability development based on the software and implemented models. Lastly, HiDALGO2 inherits the legacy of the HiDALGO project by continuing the work started under this project.

Link with other actions

HiDALGO2 is highly ambitious and in order to achieve its maximum potential it is linked with various other actions with collaboration agreements, specifically the following:

The associated costs related to citizens’ privacy both from the users’ side and the organizations side are huge, creating an imperative need for digital solutions that will ensure users privacy.

How does Future Needs participate?

Future Needs participates in various Work Packages of the project: “Project and Technical Management”, “Requirements, Specifications & Reference Architecture” (we will identify the gaps in distributed data management, extract the user requirements translating them into functional for the design of the overall architecture), “User Interfaces and Platform Integration”, “Pilot Demonstration and Validation Campaigns” and “Dissemination, Communication and Exploitation” (more specifically “Market Analysis and Business Modeling”). During the implementation of the latter, Future Needs along with other partners will ensure wide communication and scientific dissemination of the innovative TANGO results to the research, academic, and international community. Moreover, Future Needs will work towards the efficient exploitation and business planning of the TANGO concepts and tools to various domains, with the aim of identifying end users and potential customers.

What is the aim of the TANGO project?

The aim of the TANGO project is to use digital technologies as a gatekeeper to information and data flow. TANGO will leverage the power of emerging and digital technologies to improve the privacy and user-experience for citizens, to protect intellectual property, reduce costs and improve productivity for companies, and to address key bureaucratic and administration challenges for public organizations including embassies. It will provide a solution within the transport, e-commerce, finance, public administration, tourism and industrial domains supporting numerous beneficiaries across Europe.

What are the main characteristics of TANGO’s novel platform?

TANGO will introduce a novel and holistic platform for user-friendly, secure, trustworthy, compliant, fair, transparent, accountable and environmentally sustainable data management (data handling, processing, communicating and storage). Distributed and privacy preserving data collection, processing, analysis, sharing and storage in a green manner, are key elements of the platform. Security and trust will be at the core of the platform.

Funding

The funding of the project comes from  Horizon Europe.

Automated solutions for sustainable and circular construction and demolition waste management

The ambition of RECONMATIC Project

RECONMATIC project aims to provide solutions that will be easily adoptable by all stakeholders involved in the processes of Construction & Demolition Waste Μanagement (CDW), in order to reach the expected future EU target of high CDW recovery (to be set by EC in 2024 or beyond) and most importantly the status of zero CDW by 2050. This is exactly the ambition of the RECONMATIC project, entirely in line with EU Waste Framework Directives (European Commission, 2019) and the Circular Economy Action Plan (European Union, 2020).

What does Future Needs lead?

Future Needs leads the dissemination and exploitation activities of the RECONMATIC project for business and education. We have created the project visual identity and applied it to the communication material we designed for it (website, brochure, social media, documents and presentation templates). We also develop the communication strategy of the RECONMATIC  project including one to enable cooperation with other projects and initiatives. Additionally, we will ensure the future exploitation and deployment of the project results and the continuation of the project research and innovation. Finally, we will lead the training activities for the relevant stakeholders and will share the knowledge and outputs of the project to the widest possible target users.

What kind of challenges does RECONMATIC Project face?

The “zero Construction & Demolition Waste Μanagement by 2050” goal faces major challenges that coincide with the ones of RECONMATIC:

  • Fragmentation of the construction sectors and lack of cooperation among the stakeholders.
  • Lack of consideration on how to minimise CDW during the whole life cycle of buildings and infrastructure.
  • Dislike for high-end technologies in the sector and reliance on human- operated machinery or manual work.
  • Slow implementation of digital solutions due to conservatism of both local authorities/investors and construction contractors.
  • Conflicts between legislation requirements and technology readiness of the sector resulting in confusion, and inertia against taking action towards zero waste.

Which are the main aims of the project?

First, the volume of materials entering the CDW stream has to be minimized and, secondly, CDW has to be treated and better controlled to provide materials for reuse of high value products, with traceability and quality assurance. The envisaged methods and tools will reconcile the different demands on technology, cost, health and safety, sustainability, legislation and business needs of all involved stakeholders. Having developed them, RECONMATIC will proactively disseminate the knowledge and best practice to help different stakeholders in different EU countries, the UK and China to take up the developed solutions of this project and reach high impact.

Funding

The funding of the RECONMATIC project comes from Horizon Europe.

Be Well and Green when Digital

The goal of the BeWEEN project is to enhance Digital Education Readiness by building capacity in “healthier and more responsible use of digital technology”. When Digital Safety is discussed by policy makers or schools, the conversation is dominated by cybersecurity issues. The notion of “safety in a digital world” however also encompasses our personal health and the health of our planet. Our BeWEEN project aims to help teachers and students realise this and develop Competences in “Protecting health and well-being” and “Protecting the environment” Competences. These are two competences that are included in the EU Digital Competence Framework (DigComp), but are under-addressed in curricula.

BeWEEN will deliver a robust solution to be readily taken up by High School Teachers and Students to develop key digital Competences under area 4 of DigComp “Safety”, and thus address the associated challenges imposed on youth of the COVID-19 era.

Future Needs participates in the BeWEEN project as a partner responsible for the development of the Training programme material which will be piloted among High School Teachers, enhancing their Digital Education Readiness. Future Needs also leads the development of the BeWEEN Mobile Game which will be promoted to and piloted by youth learners aged 13-21 in 4 European countries.

With this project, BeWEEN partners aim to:

  • Improve the level of key digital competences and skills of High School Teachers and students in Europe and beyond;
  • Impact EU policies concerning the safe and responsible use of digital technology;
  • Promote and strengthen the European lifelong learning area, by contributing to the dissemination, multiplication and replication of this new Training material.

BeWEEN has a bottom-up approach, involving High School Teachers and students in a comprehensive process covering the components of research and analysis, piloting and evaluation and exploitation & policy making.

During the 24 months of the project’s implementation, partners, participants and potential end-users will embark into a challenging journey that will start with the research of the current needs for the development of competences and mindsets along with the collection of relevant good practices from all over Europe. The findings from this procedure will serve BeWEEN as the basis for the development of the relevant training curriculum for the digital competences of the teachers and its development and piloting. Practice-related activities will then be jointly promoted and supported by piloting actions that will enable participating high schools and educational institutions to exploit the full potential of the BeWEEN project’s results and outputs.

BeWEEN project’s immediate impact goals are:

  • 50 High School Teachers and 50 youth learners to participate in the field research;
  • At least 30 teaching resources to be developed and translated in English;
  • Over 75 High School Teachers to attend online the BeWEEN Training Programme;
  • The BeWEEN Mobile Game to reach over 750 downloads.

Creativity Tools for Green Citizenship

Where does the project aim?

Green Artivism project aims to offer young people innovative digital artistic tools in order to help the environmental cause regain momentum – after a halt due to Covid 19 pandemic – though without physical protesting. Following the climate strikes in 2018 by youngsters led by Greta Thunberg, the European Green Deal in 2019 and the core values of European Commission’s new European Bauhaus initiative (January 2021), this project visions to help people achieve a just, local, green, economically viable transition through the use of toolkits for collaboration, community building, participation in democratic procedures, literacy and advocacy.

How will Future Needs participate?

Future Needs will participate at the development and design (structure and functions) of the “CREATIVITY Web-toolkit” in Green Artivism project. This phase incorporates a number of actions, primarily the development of a tool and tutorial named “Storytelling through social media”. The aim is to inspire action with a story and measure impact. Last but not least, Future Needs will lead the development of the “GREEN CITIZENSHIP Workshop” (structure and material development), under which we will perform a number of actions, such as creating the material for the session “Local relevance of EGD for me” and the design of a Virtual Think Tank.

In which actions will the participants take part?

During Green Artivism project the participants will take part in co-op games, a festival and joint-trainings. Under the dissemination umbrella, short plays will be performed outdoors, posters & comics will be presented in public, short films will be submitted to local festivals. Also, storytelling will be included in local TedX sessions and creative writing posted in local newspapers and EU policy magazines.

Green Artivism addresses to:

  • Youth (aged 16-30 years old).
  • Youth Workers who desire to help the cultural and creative sectors recover from the crisis in terms of green, more digital and resilient recovery.
  • Youth participants, especially those involved with Arts who desire to get informed, trained and well-connected so that they can really make a change.

Which are the outcomes of the project?

After participating in the project Youth Workers will be able to replicate the GREEN CITIZENSHIP Workshop and add further material to the Web-toolkit, while youth participants will become Green Artivists and transfer knowledge acquired to peers while stimulating EGD focused active citizenship initiatives.

The long term impact of the project will be: 

To spark and retain interest on Climate Change via a VIRTUAL THINK TANK where young people, youth leaders, youth workers, policy makers and other key actors from different backgrounds will host a dialogue. Participants from Green Artivism project will be able to host their creations, to network, to find collaborators to implement their project ideas, to foster learning and capacity building between locally rooted organizations and individuals and more mature CSOs and NGOS.

Green Artivism will provide fertile ground for interaction and dialogue even (and especially) under the conditions of social distancing and the travel restrictions that Covid 19 imposed. With the finalisation of this project, it is expected that a cycle of empowerment and advocacy will be established, where more and more youth NGOs and participants will be able to join the Green Artivism network and independently express and fight for their environmental rights and for a better future with a strong, healthy and democratic civil society.

Enabling sustainable oenological practices through a robotic UAS solution for precision viticulture

What is the aim of Oenobotics?

Oenobotics services will be delivered to customers such as vineyard farmers or associations. It will use a hardware-as-a-service business model, supporting viticulture farmers to avoid significant initial investment costs. The Oenobotics hardware and software will also be available to drone companies and interested farmers as an off-the-shelf product. The solution addresses the needs of wine-producing vineyards located in remote sloppy elevated locations that are hard to reach with any machinery.

In particular, the Oenobotics project deploys a droned platform that will provide viticulture farmers the following innovative and affordable precision viticulture services:

  1. Vine disease diagnostics.
  2. Vine water-stress diagnostics.
  3. Precise spot-spraying for treatment of downy mildew, powdery mildew and grey mould/botrytis.
  4. A wireless and automated drone charging dock.

What will Future Needs coordinate?

Future Needs Management Consulting will coordinate the Minimum Viable Product definition and the service design in the Oenobotics project. Additionally, Future Needs will coordinate the trials, the user-validation and the fine-tuning of the system. Initially Future Needs will provide a description of all the services and the system technical requirements and mockups of the final product and will draw the services. When the system is built, test drone flights over Kontogiannis Family vineyards with known health state will take place. They will diagnose correctly the plants health state (disease and water-stress diagnosis) and they will spray precisely a liquid (water or a specific biological mix approved by the user) in selected areas. Finally they will automatically return to and land on the docking station to recharge.

How will Oenobotics help vineyard owners & workers?

These Oenobotics services will assist vineyards owners in avoiding health impacts of chemicals and heat on vineyard workers. What’s more, Oenobotics will help farmers to react much faster to extreme weather changes caused by climate change. Finally the project aims to assist farmers to be more sustainable and profitable by producing yield of better quality, using less pesticides (in case of conventional farming) and producing less CO2 emissions (in case of organic farming). Project results will be demonstrated in an organic vineyard in Greece.

Which activities will Future Needs lead?

Future Needs is the leader of all the market related activities of the undertaking in the Oenobotics project. These include IPR Management and GDPR, the creation of the product brand and associated promotional material. Also, the organisation of two promotional events in collaboration with DIHs and the marketing campaign for early adoption and ecosystem building. Additionally Future Needs will make a business and financial plan and a preparation for the market entry, to ensure the financial sustainability of the undertaking. Finally, Future Needs will establish an expansion strategy in order to define the means for developing scalable user-centred services and will create organizational plans (structure, processes) for the new venture that will drive the Oenobotics solution into the market.

Funding

Oenobotics is an Innovation project funded under the Open Call of the H2020 agROBOfood project.
