Besides developing own products and carrying out services for our customers, Upande is often involved in one or more projects with several other partners. Currently Upande is engaged in the Horizon 2020 funded EU project called Ground Truth 2.0.

Ground Truth 2.0 is a 3-year EU funded project that is setting up and validating six citizen observatories in real conditions, in four European and two African demonstration cases. Upande is involved in the Kenyan and Zambian demo cases.

The project is demonstrating that such observatories are technologically feasible, can be implemented sustainably and that they have many societal and economic benefits. The ultimate objective is the global market uptake of the concept and the enabling technologies.


 This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement No.689744.
