Self-sustainable, intelligent module system for city green infrastructure

Green Infrastructure is a strategically planned network of natural and semi-natural areas with other environmental features, designed and managed to provide a wide range of ecosystem services. It includes green (or blue, for aquatic ecosystems) and other physical features in terrestrial (including coastal) and marine areas. On land, the geographical indication is present in rural and urban areas. ' Interconnected strategically planned networks of ecological components can provide many benefits in terms of supporting the green economy, improving quality of life, protecting biodiversity and increasing the capacity of ecosystems to provide services such as disaster risk reduction, water purification, air quality, recreation space and mitigation climate change and adaptation.

The goal of the project is to develop a self-sustainable, intelligent module system for city green infrastructure, the MOD4GRIN.
This module consists of solutions for green roof, green wall and ground level vegetation designed for buildings, covered with stress-resistant native plant species, and equipped with water circulation system and monitoring devices configured based on the Internet of Things (IoT) approach run by solar power.

The MOD4GRIN is designed for (i) mitigation of climate changes effects (ii) restoration of ecosystem functions destroyed during urbanization process by moderation of urban heat island (UHI) effect (moderation of local temperature and humidity), improvement of water retention while preventing excessive surface runoff (iii), improving air condition, and (iv) support of the urban biodiversity and natural capital.

The detailed objectives of this project is (i) to examine the preferences of selected plant species from local flora growing in habitats similar to those occurred on the buildings (ii) testing their resistance to common urban stressors: drought, high temperature, nutrient deficiency, (iii) elaboration and testing of soil substrate with parameters similar to the natural calcareous soils (iv) provide the IoT system for green module control and collecting data from the module vicinity.

The project will result in a designed and validated green urban infrastructure module MOD4GRIN.
