Pooling of existing data and mapping of new datasets into a virtual city data environment. Covers the collection of data from existing databases, their connection to spatial maps of city infrastructure, creation of new datasets using survey methodologies, harmonization into a GIS database system, and bespoke visualisations using Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

Allows visualisation of the built environment and population in terms of key characteristics, so as to prioritise areas that need improvement. Is a key requirement to make bespoke local data available for analyses.


Bespoke simulation of how heat-waves today and under climate change scenarios affect outdoor and indoor building temperature, and how this translates to health and mortality impacts. We use Agent-Based-Modelling (ABM), combined with city maps as well as citizen and health statistics, to dynamically simulate citizen characteristics and how they influence health and mortality. To create bespoke insights we can use a wide range of local behavioural factors for the elderly population, such as the lack of mobility, need for home assistance, existing health and disease patterns, propensity of showering, and home ventilation behaviours.

Allows quantification of the health and mortality impact bespoke to a cities population today and in the future, and potential mitigation from green infrastructure and social solutions.

Simulation of how heat-waves today and under climate change scenarios affect outdoor and indoor building temperature taking into account the composition of buildings and spatial layout within an urban environment inclusive of green infrastructure impacts.

Allows detailed cross city assessment of localised temperatures, so as to provide site by site insights in improvements. Can also be used to improve the planning of new building projects for  temperature management.

Allows visualisation of building or group of buildings, modelling of hourly energy demand, demographic data and related material flows

Cloud based BIM representation capabilities allow the modelling of individual or group of buildings, allowing the material and energy flow analyses.

Allows visualisation of building or group of buildings, modelling of hourly energy demand, demographic data and related material flows


SECAP Use case

City Level data management using GIS and BIM together, enabling digitisation of the urban ecosystem.

Blockchain Capabilities serve as an open enabler for lightweight and standardised contracting, eliminating various middle layer actors such as accounting, legal and financial actors.

The technology is delivered as a micro-service that is able to be attached to the operated circular network transactions as an open and standardised way of contract management and account keeping. The services delivered to the end users, can be referenced functional units of economic benefits, benefiting from the capability of the to study the complete related network value chains and cross facility flows.

This technology is recently being tested as prototype for an Industrial Symbiosis network management solution (H2020 Project FISSAC) and for building refurbishment and occupancy process management (H2020 Project, SPHERE).

Energy management in terms of predefined standards and assessment capabilities are required and accepted in the Industrial and building sectors.

The services allow standardised monitoring and reporting for continuous improved energy efficiency.

EcoBuilding project has allowed the delivery of building level Energy Management capabilities.

Data acquisition in a timely, reliable and scalable manner is essential for continuous decision making. Emerging IoT and Industrial IoT solutions deliver the required backend to the data management needs.

EcoWise provide services allowing compliance to IoT data gateways and provided additional cloud based data sources. The Scalable and affordable wireless IoT solution of low power wide area networks (LPWAN) has been implemented for building level data management successfully.

Urban metabolism approach conceptualize urban areas as organisms, requiring goods and energy to maintain functionality and support growth, while emitting waste as a by-product. It is utilized as a modelling approach for urban ecosystems for urban circularity and sustainability assessments. The urban metabolism models comprised of various urban metabolic flows are quantified through Material Flow Analysis (MFA).

Urban metabolism sheds light on the interactions of different sub-systems within the cities. Not only the continuous flows of resources, energy and emissions but also embedded flows or stocks can be addressed by the urban metabolism models.

Urban metabolism approach is being utilized within the scope of Nature4Cities Project funded under H2020 Programme for environmental assessment of Nature Based Solutions during planning and monitoring.

Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) enables companies/ production facilities to trace basic material and energy flows, and assess the environmental impact of their production processes or products over the life cycle. Combined with Life Cycle Costing (LCC), LCA offers stronger decision support for various stakeholders.

LCA is a decision support and a benchmark tool that can be used to support cities and companies, to calculate key performance indicators, to increase resource efficiency in production processes, and to adapt to the continuously renewed environmental legislation. A novel approach to integrate LCA into urban assessments is to apply it in a dynamic manner responding to the ever-changing conditions and demands within a city.

As an established sustainability assessment methodology, LCA was utilized for evaluation of building retrofitting strategies, industrial symbiosis activities in construction value chain, nature based solutions, innovative wastewater treatment technologies as well as development of new bioplastic production processes.

Industrial symbiosis analysis focuses on establishment of synergies between companies or sectors in terms of waste exchange, joint/reverse logistics, joint infrastructure and services (including water and energy).

  • Reduction of resource consumption, cost and environmental impacts
  • Boosted efficiency by utilization of a waste stream from a production facility in another facility as a raw material
  • Creating competitive advantage for the companies by catalyzing collaborative opportunities in use of infrastructure and services.

FISSAC → Environmental benefits of establishing an industrial symbiosis network in construction value chain is quantified via LCA.

CIRC-PACK → Cross-sectorial synergies and upscaled impacts to be identified for improved circularity in plastic packaging value chain.


FISSAC IS Platform – In order to facilitate establishment and successful operation of industrial symbiosis networks, an ICT Platform is developed under FISSAC Projects (H2020), whose prototype is under testing and will be made available to symbiosis experts and industrial facilities.

Value chain optimization aims to maximize the impacts of the sustainability practices by over the whole life cycle of a product or a service by combining the industrial phases (raw material acquisition, manufacturing) with the use phase and end-of-life. For this purpose, value chain optimization makes use of various tools including, modelling and simulation, Life Cycle Assessment, Life Cycle Costing, Multi-criteria Decision Analysis, Optimization etc.

A true value chain optimization encompasses both industrial and urban aspects of the product use or service consumption and aims for realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
