ARIESPACE (S.R.L.) is a small-sized enterprise (SME), established in 2006 as the first spin-off company of the University of Naples “Federico II”. ARIESPACE aims to overcome the gap between a large amount of available spatial information and final users, such as farmers, water authority, managers and consultants. To this end, ARIESPACE develops innovative and operational geo-solutions dedicated to monitor and manage agricultural, forest and water resources (e.g. www.irrisat.com). ARIESPACE innovative technologies and competitive advantages are based on the conjunction of competences developed in different contexts and unified in a young, dynamic and multi-disciplinary working team which involves researchers, agronomists, engineers and computer scientists.
