Alternative Use of Imaging Systems through Artificial Intelligence (ALTRUIS)

Alternative Use of Imaging Systems through Artificial Intelligence (ALTRUIS)

Initiator(s): 

Digipolis

Digipolis wants to use the visual footage from the cameras, which have initially been installed for law enforcement purposes, in an ‘alternative’ way and beyond the law enforcement area with an eye to sustainable mobility solutions.
App for healthy food

App for healthy food

Initiator(s): 

Flemish Agency for Care and Health (VAZG) - Flemish Institute for Healthy Living (VIGeZ)

Many Flemish people eat unhealthy food. In order to change this behaviour the government wants to support its citizens at the moment they are in the shop buying food, but also before and after the purchase. In order to realise this, the Flemish Agency for Care and Health and the Flemish Institute for Healthy Living want to develop a smartphone application.
Assessment framework/grid for alternative fire safety measures

Assessment framework/grid for alternative fire safety measures

Initiator(s): 

Department of Welfare, Public Health and Family (WVG) and Flemish Infrastructure Fund for Personal Matters (VIPA)

Many alternative technologies already exist in the field of fire safety in buildings. However, these are not always optimal for use in new or existing care facilities because their effectiveness in combined applications is insufficiently known. On top of this, a regulatory framework is lacking.
Automatic subtitling by means of speech recognition technology

Automatic subtitling by means of speech recognition technology

Initiator(s): 

VRT

The project wants to develop a tool that can (for the greater part) automatically run the subtitling process by automatically transcribing video content and automatically producing subtitles from this. Such a tool could increase both the productivity of the web editors and the quality of the subtitling.
Blockchain on the Move

Blockchain on the Move

Initiator(s): 

Flemish government - ‘Informatie Vlaanderen’ agency and ‘Het Facilitair Bedrijf’ agency, City of Antwerp - Innovation and Technology Division, Digipolis, Flemish ICT Organisation (V-ICT-OR)

The project ‘Blockchain on the Move’ aims to provide citizens, by means of Blockchain and Internet of Things (IoT), with a ‘Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI)’ that they can use in their interaction with the government, but also with other organisations or companies.
BuyIT Public (joint digital purchasing platform)

BuyIT Public (joint digital purchasing platform)

Initiator(s): 

Flemish ICT Organisation (V-ICT-OR)

With the project ‘BuyIT Public’, V-ICT-OR aims to develop a digital platform that will enable local authorities to initiate and complete IT procurement swiftly and in accordance with public procurement legislation (equality, competition and transparency).
Capsat: Satellites imagery information for a better agricultural policy in Flanders and Europe

Capsat: Satellites imagery information for a better agricultural policy in Flanders and Europe

Initiator(s): 

Department of Agriculture and Fisheries

The Department of Agriculture and Fisheries monitors the correct and timely implementation of policies. High-resolution images from various satellites are able to map out the correct information faster. This allows better monitoring, guidance and control of farmers.
Circular building with bio-based building materials

Circular building with bio-based building materials

Initiator(s): 

Autonomous municipal company BEXIT

The project wants to validate a construction process with circular bio-based materials. This case will then be made available to raise awareness among public and private building owners on the one hand, and more generally in the broader construction sector on the other.
Development of an Optimo garbage truck

Development of an Optimo garbage truck

The simultaneous collection of the various separated waste fractions in one single transport is more sustainable (fewer kilometres) and financially more interesting. But technically there remains a problem: the Optimo garbage trucks can only press limitedly, as the bags should not tear. Research is needed on the design of loading systems (or logistical alternatives).
Digital Elevation Models of Coastal Areas (DEMCA)

Digital Elevation Models of Coastal Areas (DEMCA)

Initiator(s): 

Department Mobility and Public Works (MOW) – Maritime Access

With this project the Department of Mobility and Public Works aims to guarantee a more efficient and cost effective service in a sector of importance for Flanders.
In-situ rheometer

In-situ rheometer

Initiator(s): 

Hydraulic Laboratory

An ‘in-situ rheometer' would make it possible to estimate the navigability of Flemish ports more accurately. If extended, this instrument could also lead to a more efficient use of dredging works (read: minimising dredging costs), not only in Flanders, but also elsewhere.
Innovative cooling clothing for top athletes

Innovative cooling clothing for top athletes

Initiator(s): 

Sport Flanders

In preparing for the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020 - which are said to become hot and humid - Sport Flanders would like to develop a better cooling technology to enable Flemish athletes to cool down before, during and after the training or competition.
Integrated climate platform

Integrated climate platform

Initiator(s): 

IGEAN environment and security

The integrated climate platform will monitor the efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and make them visible to citizens, local government and regions (intercommunal, province, Flanders, etc.).
Integrated Smart City Operating System for Flanders

Integrated Smart City Operating System for Flanders

Initiator(s): 

Flemish ICT Organisation (V-ICT-OR) and Digipolis

The goal is an integrated Smart City Operating System, which is modular (and therefore sustainable), built from reusable components, and which enables faster (and therefore cheaper) applications to be developed.
Monitoring Networks

Monitoring Networks

Initiator(s): 

Flemish Environmental Agency (VMM)

This project consists of three innovative sub-projects that update the existing monitoring networks and make them ready for new challenges.
Mosaic Entrepreneurial Training

Mosaic Entrepreneurial Training

Initiator(s): 

Syntra Flanders

The supply market of entrepreneurial trainings is very fragmented in Flanders. The project aims to develop a tool to provide potential, starting and active entrepreneurs with a complete overview of the currently available entrepreneurial trainings in Flanders.
Pedestrian and bicycle bridges in composite materials

Pedestrian and bicycle bridges in composite materials

Initiator(s): 

Waterways and Sea Canals / Department of Mobility and Public Works (MOW)

The use of composite materials for bridges is almost non-existent in Flanders, although these materials (in this context: fibre-reinforced plastics) offer a number of important advantages. The aim of the pilot project is primarily to gain knowledge about the design and behaviour of composite bridges, so that MOW can make better informed choices in future assignments
Platform for Dual Learning

Platform for Dual Learning

Initiator(s): 

Flemish Entrepreneurial Training Agency Syntra Flanders

Syntra needs a system to monitor the demand and supply of learning workplaces. Syntra also wants to develop an analysis tool that examines which factors make workplace learning successful.
Public spatial planning projects in Augmented and Virtual Reality

Public spatial planning projects in Augmented and Virtual Reality

Initiator(s): 

Agency for Nature and Forestry (ANB) and Department for Mobility and Public Works (MOW)

With the latest techniques from Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR and VR) the citizen can see, hear and experience the project in a virtual way. In addition, by tracking citizen’s reactions and movement during these experiences, intuitive feedback from the public can be collected and lead to useful input and timely adjustments.
Quickscan Organisations

Quickscan Organisations

Initiator(s): 

Department of Culture, Youth and Media (CJM)

The proposal concerns the development of a digital tool 'Quickscan Organisations' and the underlying algorithm. The development of this tool will make it possible to automate the business maturity assessment and decision on eligibility, and reduce the time investment for the applicant and evaluators.
