Smart Water

System-of-Systems approach for a sustainable market of interoperable and portable Smart Water solutions.

Towards a Water-Smart Society

Water is a key natural resource that needs to be managed and used in an efficient way coping with important challenges posed by climate change and urban growth which threaten the liveability of cities, sustainable development of society and global quality of life.

The UN Sustainable Development Goal 6 aims to improve water quality and water-use efficiency, ensuring availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. Proper management of water resources is critical in order to meet Green transition targets and has a direct impact on energy and food production. Key players in the water value chain must collaborate together, breaking the current silos of information and making the most out of available data.

FIWARE delivers the necessary open standards that ease the integration of legacy and heterogeneous systems, supports decision making and brings innovative water digital solutions to the market throughout the water cycle including sources, abstraction, distribution, consumption and treatment in relation to the underlying territory. The FIWARE Ecosystem guarantees the broad uptake among utility companies, municipalities, SMEs, the software industry and general public.

Digital Water Transformation Journey

An open and interoperable digitalisation of the water sector is a mandatory path to extend legacy systems with new capabilities to handle serious challenges arising over the whole water cycle.


What makes the FIWARE’s approach unique and powerful is the curated framework of Open Source software platform components which can be assembled and, together with third-party components, used to build entire platforms which support a faster, easier and cheaper development of Smart Solutions. With FIWARE, Public Administrations, Utilities, Companies and Research Institutions have the option to implement Smart Industry platform strategies that avoid vendor lock-ins and facilitate collaborations towards the development of a sustainable market.
