Objetivo específico proyecto 27: SO 1.4 (...) Smart Specialisation / Industrial Transition / Entrepreneurship

Training programme for irrigators in Catalonia, Andalusia, Murcia, N.-Aquitaine and Alentejo.

This pilot project aims to launch 2 training programmes: — For irrigators in the use of digital technologies to improve their water use efficiency. — For irrigation communities and other actors in the collective management of water resources, to develop strategies for water management in the event of drought, using digital technologies. The training programmes will have been drawn up jointly at CESAP, under the coordination of the UPA. The pilot action will be implemented in the design and implementation of online training programmes in French, Spanish and Portuguese. The content of the programmes will be developed and implemented based on the needs identified in the diagnosis and to complement existing training courses. These online programmes will be complemented by the organisation of technological demonstration days in at least Nueva Aquitaine, Andalusia, Catalonia and Portugal. The action will ultimately be evaluated by CESAP. The aim will be to adapt the solution so that it can be integrated into the SGW Strategy, as well as facilitating its transfer to other SUDOE regions.

Water management strategy in Catalonia, Andalusia and Alentejo, and N. Aquitaine

The objective of this pilot action is to develop water management strategies in situations of scarcity using digital technologies. The methodology will have been developed jointly and standardised at CESAP, under the coordination of the IRTA. It will be implemented with irrigation communities in the regions of Andalusia, Catalonia and Alentejo and in a sub-basin of Nouvelle-Aquitaine (Adour and Dordogne). The main expected results are the application of water management strategies in situations of scarcity, using a method that can serve as a reference for other actors of SUDOE. This will encourage the adoption of good practices and the improvement of governance in the collective management of water resources. The action will be evaluated jointly in CESAP on the basis of the opinions of the actors who have participated in the elaboration of the strategies. This evaluation will allow the solution to be adapted so that it can be integrated into the SGW Strategy, as well as facilitating its transfer to other SUDOE regions.

Method of characterization and evaluation of existing digital solutions on the market

The objective of this pilot action is to jointly develop a method and then characterise existing digital solutions on the market (sensors, remote sensing, remote control, irrigation software). The methodology and evaluation of digital solutions will have been developed jointly and standardised in CESAP, under the coordination of the UPA. The development of the method will be enriched by the participation of the different actors involved in the project and with the results of the other activities of the project: This action will propose recommendations for irrigation sector technicians in the SUDOE for the choice of solutions among the existing product range. It will also identify gaps in the repertoire of available technologies and make recommendations to solution developers on current supply gaps and opportunities for improvement. All this will be available on the SGW platform, which will also constitute a forum for exchange between farmers (technological users), companies (suppliers) and technology centres or universities (evaluating trainers). In this way, farmers in the SUDOE region will be able to share their knowledge about certain tools with their counterparts, while companies and trainers will be able to better understand the needs of users and improve the proposed solutions.

Business & Technology Pilot

In France, a global industrial solution for textile waste recycling based on WASTEX technology and partnership with coleo will be implemented. This pilot has the industrial and organizational capacity of the members of RECYCL’Occ Textile. In Portugal, Texteis Penedo and CITEVE will develop new fibres from textile waste. The pilot in Portugal will process textile waste from TEXTEIS PENEDO and local agro-industrial waste in a bio-based formulation used to coat yarns, using a patented Jacquard fabric PP8 technology, to develop textile structures for home textile applications. In Spain, coleo will train partners from France, Spain and Portugal in post-consumer textile waste sorting technology. The waste streams that reach the processing plants will be analysed to characterise the type of waste and establish joint recovery and recovery priorities.

Piloto de gamificación

This pilot will target the educational community and will deploy a gamification program in schools that encourages mentality change in children. The program will involve 50 schools for 4-6 weeks. Clothing collection races will be organised with municipalities and textile waste managers. Practical upcycling and repair workshops will be held and students will collect from schools disused clothing from their families and social environment.

The SMART GREEN WATER (SGW) strategy is a transnational strategy for the development and provision of solutions that respond to the needs of sustainable and digital agriculture through the implementation of Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3) in the SUDOE space. The SGW Strategy will propose a jointly developed method to be applied to increase digital skills in water management for agricultural use in the project regions and adaptable to other SUDOE regions. It shall define the objectives and indicators to be achieved and the necessary levers for action in each of the Regions. The strategy will be constructed in a way that will usefully complement the objectives of existing S3s and future S3s for the period 2027-2034. Tested through pilot actions and demonstration projects, the SGW strategy will propose solutions for better targeting farmers towards tools adapted to their needs (1.3), training in these tools (2.2), the transnational consolidation of digital tools for irrigation management, through experimentation in several Regions (2.3). Solutions will also be proposed to connect technology companies with farmers, in order to boost supply and demand and matching needs and solutions. It will be reflected in an action plan for the digitisation of water use by farmers in Catalonia, which will serve as a reference for the other regions of the SUDOE territory. This action plan, drawn up jointly, will list the resources needed to achieve the various objectives: actors, tools, financing, links with other sectoral policies (water, agriculture). A dissemination plan will be developed and implemented to encourage the adoption of the SGW strategy by the competent authorities of the project regions and its implementation in the short and medium term.

Method to identify industrial and territorial problems and provide solutions to solve them

The methodology will be built in conjunction with the clusters and incubators of the SCAIRA project and will be validated by the public authorities. It will detail the following steps: the mapping of local ecosystems, the establishment of the database, the organisation of external audits and analyses, the organisation of local workshops, the description of the Design Thinking method and the questionnaire used, the organisation of the final session, as well as the integration of comments from taxpayers and public authorities in terms of the methodology and relevance of the identified challenges. Secondly, the methodology for emerging solutions will also be built in conjunction with incubators and CTAs. It will take the concepts of the Sustainable Innovation Challenge developed by IMT Albi and optimise them to meet SCAIRA’s transnational objectives. This methodology will be tested during GT1 by the 5 incubators in the aeronautical and automotive sectors. It has set a target of 6 industrial and territorial challenges to be identified through the methodology developed, as well as the realisation of 2 emergency events, one in 2024 and the other in 2025. These 2 events will be Hackathons organised in a hybrid way with an event organised in person in one of the Spanish, Portuguese and French incubators. In practice, 3 events will be organised on the same date of 2024 in the facilities of HIESE (Portugal), CEEIM (Spain) and IMT Albi (France) with joint live presentations and a common agenda. By 2025 it will be organised in the facilities of HIESE (Portugal), FUNDECYT (Spain) and CARO (France).
