Since 2014, Società Acquedotti Tirreni has participated in research projects funded by the European Community: indeed, in that same year, the company became part, in the role of pilot, of the Consortium of Companies, Institutions and Universities involved in the European WISDOM (Water analytics and Intelligent Sensing for Demand Optimised Management) project.
The pilot, as part of a Research Consortium, made its infrastructure available to the participants in the project to allow them to implement and test the solutions studied and developed.
Having successfully concluded the WISDOM experience in 2017, Società Acquedotti Tirreni is now participating, again in the role of pilot, in the European FitOptivis project, which started in June 2018 and which aims to improve the “physical" safety of critical infrastructure. SAT falls into that category since it provides a public service of primary importance.
Starting in 2018, SAT has been participating in the events organised by the European Community with a view to building new consortia for the preparation of applications to participate in future Research and Development projects. In particular, it was at the EFECS (European Forum for Electronic Components and Systems) in 2018 in Lisbon, in 2019 in Helsinki and in 2020 (event organised online due to the problems related to the containment of the pandemic caused by Covid-19).
The company took part in the Brokerage Events organised in Brussels in 2019, 2020 and 2021 (online).

The project was submitted and approved by the European Community in “Call FP7 — ICT — 2013—11”.
The FitOptiVis project was funded by the European Community as part of the Horizon 2020 programme - EU.220.127.116.11 - ECSEL. The consortium is made up of 30 partners from five European countries (The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Finland, Spain and Italy) and is coordinated by Philips.
