BitaGreen is preparing a start-up from the VUB research group on hydrology in the framework of a VLAIO Innovatie mandate. BitaGreen offers solutions for urban water management and liveability, based on nature. It won the award in the Water category, for developing a method for planning green infrastructure in urban areas. It combines hydrological data such as sewage systems and flood risks with the ecosystem functions of the green infrastructure. By making cities greener, preventing flooding and avoiding urban heat islands, BitaGreen contributes to the realisation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
