Project OliFLY - Olive Flies Remote Monitoring System (2015)

Our general objective is to develop a cost-effective, yet user-friendly system for automatic monitoring of olive fly occurrence and expanding by using smart application for android and iOS.
Olive fly is the single most important pest damaging up to 100 % of table olive production and severely reducing the quality and yield of olive oil. By using our smart application, accompanied by the real-time imaging of pest traps in the orchard, olive growers will be able to monitor the changes of olive fly population from their homes and offices. This will enable them to react on time to save their crop and product quality as well as reduce the cost of pesticides and labour. Not to mention the improved environmental safety, health and agricultural sustainability.

Project SHAPE (2011 - 2014)
Members of consortium Emilia Romagna Region, Marche Region - Coastal Defence Department (Italy) (lead partner); Regional Agency for Environmental Protection of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Veneto Region – “Progetto Venezia” Departement (Italy); Abruzzo Region - Maritime Works and Marine Water Service (Italy); Molise Regional Agency for Environmental Protectio (Italy); Puglia Region - Mediterranean Department (Italy); Koper Regional Development Centre; Istria Institute for Physical Planning Region, Public Institution Priority Actions Programme (Croatia); Bosnia–Herzegovina Ministry of civil engineering and physical planning; Montenegro Public Enterprise for Coastal Zone Management; Environmental Centre for Administration and Technology in Tirana (Albania)

SHAPE project was focused on sustainable development in the Adriatic Sea, specifically in strengthening institutional support for the protection and management of resources (natural and cultural) and risk prevention.
The purpose of the project was to establish a multi-level and cross-system management of coastal areas, which would be focused on the rational use of resources and the ability to resolve conflicts between different uses. Based on the European strategies, Protocol on Integrated Coastal Zone Management and on the marine spatial planning, will be developed and tested models of management.

Harpha Sea took part in various project tasks:

  • 3D GIS of the slovenian coast with all utilities for Integrated coastal zone management including GPS survey of the coastal line, elaboration of LIDAR and multibeam sonar data for generating 3D detailed map and generation of spatial data base for documents, different GIS layers, objects;
  • Implementation of local GIS for MSP and ICZM in Albania (ECAT Tirana);
  • Collection and elaboration of spatial data to be implemented in Adriatic Atlas web application for complete east Adriatic coast (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Albania);
  •  Development of demonstrative GIS Atlas with thematic maps for Montenegro (Public Enterprise for Coastal zone Management of Montenegro);
  • Creation of 3D viewer to support ICZM and MSP at local scale, including presentation of Istrian Region’s terrestrial and marine habitats, which have been mapped within SHAPE WP 5.4.2 Pilot project.


Project BICY (2010 - 2013)
Members of consortium Provincia di Ferrara (Italija), Provincia di Ravenna (Italy), DISTART-Institute of Transportation Engineering-Universita' di Bologna (Italia), Kosice Self-Governing Region (Slovaška) , Local Government Budaörs (Madžarska), Regionalni razvojni center Koper (Slovenija), FGM-AMOR Austrian Mobility Research (Austrija), Mestna občina Velenje (Slovenija), BICYCLE developement project bicycle club (Austrija), European Development Agency CR (Češka), Europa Programme Centre (Nemčija)

Considering that around 80% of all urban trips have a distance of less than 5 kilometres it becomes evident that an increased use of bicycles would bring about an enormous reduction of problems associated with congestion, pollution and the emission of CO2. As a consequence of this many positive effects could be achieved. From improved health, time savings to combating climate change. In other words, cycling mobility (together with walking and in combination with public transport) should be promoted as the most sustainable, ecological and, under certain conditions, healthiest and safest way of mobility. The BICY project partnership includes those that are forerunners with regard to bicycle mobility. In Ferrara, Italy, for example more than 30% of all urban trips are done by bike and in Graz, Austria, the numbers are: 20% bike trips in the city centre and 16% in total. These two partners intend to further consolidate and increase their performance and, at the same time to transfer their experiences to late runners and areas that have just started to improve bicycle mobility. Late runners will lay down the conceptual and operational basis to first set up an adequate bike infrastructure and design comprehensive mobility plans that centre on cycling. More advanced areas and front runners will improve their existing cycling system, work out a possible integration with other soft means of mobility and try out new innovative technologies in the field of cycle mobility. More about the project can be found here.
Company Harpha Sea developed a mobile app BICY wich allows users to acess information about existing bike routes in region.

Earth crust deformation continuous monitoring using GNSS local geodetic networks demands suitable computational and informatics tools. Applications like seismic hazard, subsidence or landslides monitoring requires the highest accuracy in positioning with as short as possible measurements sessions length. The GEOLOCALNET project investigates the three carriers based Galileo Satellite System positioning capability developing and validating innovative estimation procedures, algorithms and using the most efficient models with the purpose to fulfil these requirements.

Members of consortium Municipalities of Koper (for them Harpha Sea, d.o.o. Koper), Caorle and Grado
TURSUB is the Project developed by the Municipalities of Caorle, Grado and Koper in the context of the 2000-2006 INTERREG III A ITALY-SLOVENIA Activity Program with the common objective of promoting and increasing the value of their marine environments through the creation of a trans-national network of underwater itineraries with differing degrees of difficulty that can be used by anyone, from the most expert scuba diver to the most novice of snorkellers. Each of the three Municipalities has chosen four underwater itineraries along its coastline on the basis of their natural beauty and/or archaeological interest The 12 leaflets (one for each route) in this set provide all the information necessary to make the dives in safety and contain a map with the respective route marked out, the points of greatest interest, technical data, and detailed description in addition to special features and background material. You can read more about the project on the official site here.
