DINAPSIS Open Challenge


What was the 2nd Open Challenge like?

In December 2021, the second Dinapsis Open Challenge , focused on extreme weather events, optimisation of water consumption and wastewater management, took place in the Region of Murcia. A total of 28 participants offered their solutions, of which only five reached the final phase, where they presented their projects before a panel of judges. The two winners will be able to develop their pilots.

Specialist in generating flexible and scalable IoT solutions for smart cities based on data collection.

Its intelligent irrigation management solution is based on the integration of meteorological and morphological data on vegetation to optimise irrigation and reduce water consumption by up to 40%.


Weather radars have good spatial coverage but average reliability, while rain gauges are more reliable but lack extensive coverage.

WDNA has developed a technology to provide a new source of highly reliable and comprehensive weather observation, which allows more accurate prediction of extreme events.

¿What is DINAPSIS Open Challenge?

DINAPSIS Open Challenge is an open innovation program that seeks to connect entrepreneurs and start-ups with the territory’s innovation ecosystem, including public authorities, associations and companies, both large and small.

This third edition will be held at Dinapsis Costa Blanca with the aim of strengthening the innovation ecosystem in the Benidorm and Alicante area. The towns and cities in this area have many needs in terms of sustainability, tourism, green areas and actions for the 2030 Agenda, so in this call we are looking for start-ups who operate within the following subject areas: green infrastructures, urban resilience, tourist flows and nature-based solutions.

Our main objective is to find start-ups capable of solving the challenges posed and carry out a subsequent pilot test that allows us to draw conclusions for future implementation.
