News & Events

INDICATE was invited to take part in a joint workshop with two other FP7 projects, DIMMER and OPTIMUS. This was held at the Politecnico di Torino on September 14th and 15th 2016. This aim of this workshop was to explore common themes and results among the projects. It was interesting to share insights with these two projects, which are also finishing in September. Aidan Melia chaired a break-out session on Data Management and Visualisation. A number of common issues and trends emerged from this session from the three projects.

An INDICATE-focused dissemination workshop will be taking place in Genoa on September 16, 2016.  The program for the dissemination workshop, hosted by INDICATE Partner D'Appolonia is as follows:

DIMMER stands for District Information Modelling and Management for Energy Reduction. This project is coordinated by the Politecnico di Torino, with test sites in Turin and Manchester. The aim of the project is to integrate BIM and district level 3D models with real-time data from sensors and user feedback to analyse and correlate buildings utilization and provide real-time feedback about energy-related behaviours.

OPTIMUS stands for Optimising Energy Use in Cities Through Smart Decision Support Systems. This project is coordinated by the National Technical University in Athens, with test sites in Savona, Sant Cugat del Valles, and Zaanstad. The aim of the project is to design and develop a Decision Support System as an integrated web-platform to help local authorities to show the best energy saving opportunities available in public buildings.

The workshop is aimed at examining common themes amongst the projects then breaking into three Parallel Sessions looking at:

•User identification and data required

•Technologies developed

•Data management and visualization 


The event, scheduled to take place in Turin, Italy on September 14-15, 2016 will be attended on by Nicolas Urbina (Galliera Hospital), Aidan Melia (IES), and Alberto Mussetti (Dappolonia) on behalf of the INDICATE project.
