eVision Industry Software first Dutch company to receive 2015 European grant for Open Disruptive Innovation

EU Horizon 2020 programme recognizes Predictive Vision as a potential breakthrough innovation that will change the way hazardous industries manage risk and efficiency.

The EU Commission has granted eVision up to €2.3 million for funding further development of Predictive Vision, an open disruptive innovation that will revolutionise the way companies in hazardous industries around the globe operate and mitigate risk. The grant is awarded as part of the Horizon 2020 programme, the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever and will be used to further develop the product.

Predictive Vision takes Control of Work to the next level and allows companies in the Oil & Gas and Petrochemical industry early to predict and detect risk levels and visualize this in a single easy-to-understand overview. Not only will it be designed to prevent large scale incidents, the system allows personal safety to be planned and managed more effectively, decreasing global industry fatality levels.

eVision is the only Dutch company to have received the grant for Open Disruptive Innovation, and one of the few companies in the European Union. “The acknowledgement of the EU for the potential of our product shows that we are working on something very special”, says Neil Currie, Chief Product Officer at eVision. ”We believe that digital transformation of our clients’ frontline operations combined with the open architecture and data analysis can reduce incidents and ultimately save lives”.

Predictive Vision compiles information from over 25 different systems, providing the innovative software a comprehensive view of outstanding permits, changing shifts, and all types of registers and databases at any given moment. The compiled data is then algorithmically analysed, crosslinking potential hazards, and validated for increased risk potentials. Situational developments are automatically fed to the live feed, giving management the tools to intervene where necessary.

The main intent and ultimate goal of the solution is to create a real-time, predictive risk management system for usage at the frontline, ensuring hazardous industries are transformed to operate more safely. Predictive Vision is a lifesaving solution that can decrease the likelihood of accidents and injuries by combining, analysing, and interpreting data in a new and unique way.
