MAGNUM Project

The MAGNUM project consists of the development of a Digital Twin platform for the monitoring and optimisation of the water footprint in hotels.


The MAGNUM project, “A BIM-enabled platform for digital MAnaGemeNt of water footprint in tourism”, aims to design a next generation software ecosystem for sustainable hotel operation through Artificial Intelligence and BIM-based data interoperability. Built around the concept of water footprint, Magnum will offer hotel operators a highly operational platform that will provide advanced monitoring and control of the main environmental impacts related to water footprint.

The project will allow guests to be part of the hotel’s water footprint management, offering them personalised recommendations on sustainable behaviours associated with the use of the hotel’s services.

IDP is leading the development and implementation of the Digital Twin application for hotel assets relevant to water footprint management.

Magnum is part of the State Programme to Promote Scientific-Technical Research and its Transfer, of the State Plan for Scientific, Technical and Innovation Research 2021-2023, within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan.
