The Cyanobacteria Blooms Public Information Service
The CyanoLakes Project (funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020 EO-1-2016 "Downstream Applications") will be a global service for environmental authorities and the commercial sector, concerned by health risks and quality of water resources. The project makes use of the wealth of information provided by Copernicus to deliver a fully automated application for assessing toxin-producing cyanobacteria blooms in water resources globally. The service foresees a dual system that provides user-specific information for monitoring and reporting purposes to paying customers, and a free and open information service for the general public. The project is based on the CyanoLakes business idea that won the Copernicus Masters Ideas challenge in 2014. The service will be implemented through a collaboration between a South African and European SMEs, and with pilot users in the government and commercial sector. Through establishing a supply chain for the information products and integrating these into customerís workflows, the project seeks to create a sustainable business within three years following the period of project funding.
