The project for both companies consists of an intelligent device that incorporates extremely useful parameters to obtain efficient energy.

The University Foundation and Higher Learning of Castile and Leon (FUESCYL) delivered yesterday the “University Business Challenge” awards as part of the TCUE Plan for the Territorial Delegation of Castile and Leon. The two winning projects within the category “Special New Entrepreneurs” were Secyt Engineering, located in the Science Park of the University of Salamanca, and the BISITE research group.

As director of the BISITE group, it was an honour to receive this award together with Jose Vicente, Sales Director of Secyt Engineering, for the project “SC2- Sequestration of CO2 based on a SamartCity platform” which was awarded 12,000 euros and represents a boost and recognition for the efforts made on a daily basis by the University researchers.

As part of the project, the BISITE group applied its advanced knowledge in Artificial Intelligence and SmartCity to a CO2 sequestration component for urban environments in which the Secyt Engineering Company, expert in energy efficiency and the environment, has been working for over three years. In this case, the joint effort between university and enterprise will make it possible to design and manufacture an intelligent device which will gather and process multiple parameters that are useful for the new generation of predictive modelling for temperature, pollution, pollen, etc. The recognition that accompanies this award will allow both parties to work on building a prototype to apply this knowledge.
