Seacon’s projects in the B2B session.
Horizon Europe Cluster 5 Climate, Energy, and Mobility International Networking Event.
The International Networking Event organised by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) in cooperation with Sabancı University and ARGEMIP under the “Turkey in Horizon 2020 Phase II” Technical Assistance Project which is co-financed by the EU and the Republic of Turkey and implemented by the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Industry and Technology within the scope of Competitive Sectors Programme.
The event organised as an on-line event and will be held on 18, 19, and 20 October 2021.
The event will cover most of the Horizon Europe Cluster 5 calls that are open during the event time and will be opened soon.
The three day networking event will cover informative sessions about the call topics, pitching sessions for the presentation of ideas & competences and finding partner alternatives for consortiums and one-to-one partnering meetings.
The event aims at bringing together participants from Europe and Turkey, coming from both research and industrial communities working in related fields. This will not only give the unique opportunity to connect with Turkish and European researchers to discuss Horizon Europe Cluster 5 project ideas, but also get first-hand information about the upcoming calls. This event will be an excellent platform to expand the partnernetwork and create new partnerships for the upcoming calls.
Seacon staff also participated in the B2B section of the event with the company’s 3 running Eureka and Eurostars projects, where they talked about cooperation and further development opportunities with Turkish, Spanish, Slovak, French and Maltese partners. Climate change, energy, mobility and transport, as well as self-driving vehicles, were key topics. The issues of water management, water treatment and wastewater were discussed, but the application of museum measurement technology was also brought to the fore by one of the negotiating partners.
The event was attended by 456 participants from 32 countries.
Working together for water
Hungarian businesses working together for water
When professional and IT knowledge meet, they must produce something significant. The same conclusion was reached by Waterscope Zrt. and Seacon Europe Kft. when the two companies' managers agreed on a long-term cooperation. The Seansors2Net (S2N) smart wireless measurement network, continuous data collection and processing, SWAM analysis and visualisation capabilities combined with professional experience which promise great opportunities for the Hungarian and international water management.
From the professional point of view, the essence of cooperation is to produce useful information based on continuous data collection, and to show it in a simple way. Contrast with manual measurement techniques, the solution provided by the two companies can display results from an incomparably greater number of locations, more quickly and much more efficiently. Even in the worst case, the measured value will be displayed within minutes of the measurement on the smart devices, tablets or computers of the experts, who will then be able to make the appropriate assessments.
The partners have also identified the water management areas that could be considered as a first step. They are already working on the processing of surface water quality data, the connection of a smart hydrant solution and the implementation of pressure monitoring. The monitoring of waste water treatment and the implementation of fish farm measurements have also been discussed.
Eureka Certificate for the Museion project
The EUREKA Network application E!13370-MUSEION got the EUREKA Certificate which has been endorsed by the EUREKA High Level Group on 02.07.2021.
The concept of the project, which aims to protect cultural heritage using by modern technologies, was created by a consortium of Romanian, Turkish and Hungarian partners, who together plan to take into account the perspectives of museums, works of art and visitors.
The project will build on the earlier work carried out by BEIA, SEACON and SAMPAS that focused on technologies for monitoring of environmental parameters, data processing and vizualisation. By developing specific algorithms INCTDP-ICPI performs the research on mechanisms governing the environment-related deterioration processes of heritage materials and risk assessment of air pollution impacts on cultural heritage assets.
The implementation of the project started on 01.08.2021 and is planned to be completed by 31.07.2024.
Preservation of values and environmental changes
MUSEION enforces a holistic conception of the preservation and valorisation of CULTURAL HERITAGE. This approach is necessary to deal with the growing challenge of conservation, especially when most of the global heritage is threatened by the environmental changes. The main concern of cultural heritage professionals is a complex solution for the preservation and sustainable management of collections in addition to increased public service.
The MUSEION project will develop integrated solution for cultural heritage sustainable management of environmental control and adaptation to CLIMATE CHANGE as well as for resources optimisations: costs, energy and carbon footprint reduction.
MUSEION project specifically aims at developing a REPLICABLE IOT-BASED SOLUTION to monitor, evaluate and mitigate the potential impact of climate change on cultural heritage collections by addressing the need for applying knowledge and technology to solve problems of real objects in real conditions - namely sustainable environmental control and adaptation to climate change.
To ensure an optimised climate, it considers at least the 3 principal components of a museum system: the MUSEUM itself, the ARTWORKS and the VISITORS.
The project will build on the earlier work carried out by BEIA, SEACON and SAMPAS that focused on technologies for monitoring of environmental parameters, data processing and vizualisation. Developing specific algorithms INCTDP-ICPI performs the research through its ARCH Lab on mechanisms governing the environment-related deterioration processes of heritage materials and risk assessment of air pollution impacts on cultural heritage assets.
Expected international outcomes of the project:
- Develop the ability of professionals to adapt to the effects of climate change
- Enhances awareness on preventive conservation
- Strengthens long-term planned assessment actions
- Reduces the maintenance and restoration costs
Ökoindustria Virtual Green Expo & B2B
SWAM at the virtual green industry expo and conference
The main goal of the SWAM platform, which provides intelligent water management monitoring, is the efficient provision of water-related information, as well as the support and acceleration of professional digitization processes. The effort fit perfectly with the program of the third day of the ÖKOINDUSTRIA trade fair and conference. At the same time, it allowed our professionals to meet with industry players.
For more than a decade, the event organised by the Hungarian Association of Environmental Enterprises (HAEE) has been synonymous with the meeting place for eco-industry companies and managers, experts and entrepreneurs committed to sustainable technologies. Not even the pandemic could deter the organizers from their mission to create something extraordinary, unique and even greener.
This is how the virtual ÖKOINDUSTRIA has come to life, and now it is offering more intensive and colourful programmes and more active participation than ever. It is also greener, since it is possible to participate from the comfort of your home or office without travelling or increasing the carbon footprint.
The ÖKOINDUSTRIA is both one of the leading green trade fair of Central Eastern Europe and a series of conferences on such hot topics as green labour, single-use plastic and littering.
The programmes took place at multiple locations in parallel, so a number of events were offered from which all visitors could choose according the their interests and industry.
Digitalisation in water management resources
The growing demand for clean drinking water and the associated increase in water shortages are more and more encouraging municipalities, authorities, environmental agencies and water utilities to be the est and most careful owners of their water Reducing unbilled water loss, in time detection of pipeline leaks and cracks, real-time monitoring of distribution network pressure and condition, intelligent onitoring of surface water - These key topics are of interest for water professionals, and inspire them to introduce smart solutions, new technologies, which haven’t been used in the water industry sofar.
Online B2B event
In addition to professional programs, our colleagues had the opportunity to meet participants in the water industry. As service providers they strive to treat water as a value and a limited resource available. During the negotiations with the partners, we confirmed the fact that the effective information that is constantly being produced can become a serious tool in the hands of professionals, both in Hungary and in the surrounding countries. We closed the discussion with several partners in the hope of future cooperation.

Development of an Intelligent Decision Support System for Smart Viticulture
- Monitor weather conditions, agriculture parameters and air quality necessary for irrigation
- Detect pesticides in Smart Agriculture
- Manage and operate the vineyard quality through Smart Platform
This article is based on the research and the results obtained in the Disavit project
The Internet of Things (IoT) represents the best option for smart vineyard applications, even if it is necessary to integrate the technologies required for the development. This article is based on the research and the results obtained in the DISAVIT project. For Smart Agriculture, the project aims to provide a trustworthy, intelligent, integrated vineyard management solution that is based on the IoT. To have interoperability through the use of a multiprotocol technology (being the future connected wireless IoT) it is necessary to adopt an agnostic approach, providing a reliable environment to address cyber security, IoT-based threats and traceability through blockchain-based design, but also creating a concept for long-term implementations (modular, scalable). The ones described above represent the main innovative technical aspects of this project. The DISAVIT project studies and promotes the incorporation of better management tools based on objective data-based decisions, which are necessary for agriculture adapted and more resistant to climate change. It also exploits the opportunities generated by the digital services market for smart agriculture management stakeholders. The project's final result aims to improve decision-making, performance, and viticulturally infrastructure and increase real-time data accuracy and interoperability. Innovative aspects such as end-to-end solutions, adaptability, scalability, security and traceability, place our product in a favorable situation over competitors. None of the solutions in the market meet every one of these requirements by a unique product being innovative
