Lessons from adapting resilience indicators to flooding and storm-water management

This deliverable reports on the adaption of tools developed in the H2020 project Smart Resilience for identifying, visualizing and evaluating/acting upon data addressing resilience in critical infrastructures. These tools will be adapted to stormwater management and tested by stakeholders in Gothenburg, using sensor data. The task will aid in implementing, adapting and evaluating their uses, identifying best practices and salient social and organizational enablers. Task 5.2

Assessment of baseline conditions for all demonstration cases

The assessment focuses on organizational conditions (Stakeholder organizations etc.) in for example existing processes and ability to use data, regulatory context and how well the methods and techniques can be implemented in the different cities. It is summarized in a report and carried out through interviews and/or focus groups. This deliverable will then serve as a base for continued work. Output of subtask 4.1.1.

Risk Management Plan

Risk Management Plan (RMP ). This deliverable will detail challenges for delivering quality products in due time and with given resources that have arisen in the preliminary stage of the project. The RMP will also describe how these challenges will be managed through the structure developed in the risk mitigation procedures outlined in the proposal. Task 8.5

1st version of data-driven models report for a water-smart society

The goal of D2.4, which corresponds with the outcome of task 2.2 and 2.3, is to provide the first report describing designed and trained data-driven models. This description also includes the data pre-processing techniques used to split the information, detect and correct outliers, eliminate unrepresentative features and feature engineering.

Requirement specification (hardware, software, standards)

This report includes a review of types of sensors and their communication protocols, and data driven models commonly used in the water sector. The review will come from scientific papers and grey literature, including outcomes generated by former financed EU projects.

Plan for synergies with other projects

Opportunities for synergies will be identified either in terms of a common scope of work or in terms of complementarities.

A framework for specifying how to develop users’ needs and requirements in an iterative process

The deliverable provides a framework for the process to specify stakeholders’ needs and requirements in WP4 and the collection and analysis of data from the demonstration cases, with regard to organizational and social enablers for development and use of SCOREwater technologies. Task 5.1

Deployment of sensors around the Amersfoort Railway Station, including selection and formal permit for monitoring

The deliverable will be an integrated and deployed sensor network around the Amersfoort Railway Station and a brief report of the sensor selection and installation procedure. More specific, the report will summarize: 1) Obtaining formal permits for linking the physical to digital world 2) Selection of sensor measurement sites 3) Data characteristics for the deployed sensors and their measurements


A project website will be published which can be used for the communication between the SCOREwater partners, to publish news and present the projects for the public and to our target audience. On this website visitors can find general information about SCOREwater, the separate projects, news and results. The website is also used to create and build up a database with people interested in the SCOREwater projects, separated in different groups (general and for the several cities). Task 7.3

Input to testing phase regarding implementing technologies for water management

This deliverable (part of subtask 4.1.2) will summarize lessons learned from the participating partners in the implementation phase in order to provide the next phase (testing phase) with necessary information regarding implementation for water management and to ensure development and improvement from a perspective of users and developers. For this phase it will focus on barriers and/or enablers for implementation in real environment in the three cities, lessons regarding deployment of sensors, set up of models etc).

Organize events

Organize events (FC, TP, OTHER, PU, M15). Initiate local events to share and discuss the adaptive deployment of sensors, algorithms and models and the set-up of processes for using the platform and the data. UNI will implement programs for public audience as well as schools in Gothenburg.

Sharing experiences and demonstration cases

Sharing the first experience and demonstration cases around the first prototype(s) (TP, OTHER, PU, M12). Prototype content for public outreach in collaboration with, specifically the technology designers in WP1, WP2 and .WP3 for the technology programme theme and WP4 large-scale demonstrators for the life below water programme theme.

SCOREwater Identity

Creating a new identity (new logo and description of the colours and font styles which can be used in all communication) for SCOREwater. Based on the new identity we create several formats for newsletters, presentations and other communication tools, so that all communication can be recognized despite of how is making it. This is part of task 7.3 and will be set up in the beginning of the project and communicated to the whole project team.

Input to implementation phase regarding prototyping technologies for water management

This deliverable (part of subtask 4.1.2) will summarize lessons learned from the participating partners in the prototype phase (Wp 2 and 3) in order to provide the next phase (implementation phase) with necessary information regarding implementation for water managemen and to ensure development and improvement from a perspective of users and developers. For this phase it will focus on barriers and/or enablers for the first versions of techniqies regarding data analytics, development of the platform etc.

Communication action plan

Creating a communication action plan for SCOREwater with the several channels, activities, events and communication tools we want to communicate results, news and lessons learn from the SCOREwater projects to a big target audience (general and in the separate cities). The target audience is based on the network of the several partners of SCOREwater (described in the general agreement). Due to several activities (mainly through social media) we build up the database and reach a big European audience with all newsletters, communication tools and events. Task 7.3

Integration of hydrological and groundwater models in the SCOREwater platform

The deliverable will be integration of existing data in to the SCOREwater platform for two geographic areas, namely the Railway Station are and the Schothorst area. More specific, the following items will be connected and produce data to the platform: 1) Existing monitoring networks on weather 2) Rainfall data 3) Flood alarms

Integration of existing ICT modules in the SCOREwater platform

The existing Amersfoort Open Data Platform will be integrated in and updated to the SCOREwater platform. We will connect existing ICT-systems and data solutions to the SCOREwater Platform (e.g. HydroNET, used by the majority of Dutch water managers). This deliverable will use the input from tasks in from WP3, like the architectural guidelines, standards and Data Market. The result of this deliverable will be: 1- An integrated data management platform (SCOREwater platform) to support the demonstration projects that incorporates the existing open data platform 2- A connection from the SCOREwater platform to internal systems and data sources in the City of Amersfoort 3- A connection from the SCOREwater platform to data sources and information products from 3rd parties like HydroNET 4- A integration of sensors and data streams into the SCOREwater platform to support the demonstrations projects The results of this deliverable provide input for tasks 5.1, 5.3, 6.1, 8.3 and 8.6.
