Horizon 2020 Project


Opertus Mundi aims to create a Single Digital Market for Industrial Geospatial Data Assets. It will deliver a trusted, secure, and highly scalable pan-European industrial geospatial data market, that will act as a single-point for the streamlined and trusted discovery, sharing, trading, remuneration, and use of proprietary geospatial data assets. It will provide a central hub for geospatial data that guarantees low costs and flexibility to all users regardless of their size, domain, and expertise.

AZO’s main contribution is the management of the communication, dissemination and exploitation activities. AZO acts as Innovation and Communication Manager being responsible for coordinating and facilitating exploitation actions, ensuring knowledge transfer from innovation to business partners, monitoring the market and direct innovation agenda, assisting the industrial partners with the integration of the project’s output in their business practices.

The name of the new EU-wide geospatial data marketplace will be TOPIO.MARKET. Beta operations will start in early 2021.

The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 870228.
