Mitiga Solutions uses artificial intelligence and supercomputing to improve prevention, resilience and adaptability to climate change-related risks

The spin-off of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center - Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS) Mitiga Solutions, which uses advanced mathematical models, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing to develop technology that improves prevention, resilience and adaptability to climate-related risks, has been selected best start-up of 2023 at the D+I Innovation Awards.

Alejandro Martí, CEO of Mitiga Solutions, received the award. The company was born in 2018 with the aim of creating a platform that translates the complexity of climate science in just a couple of minutes, to offer its clients the ability to have a global view of the risks associated with climate change and compare their assets to detect those most affected by climate variation. This helps them make more profitable financial decisions, such as mortgages or investments.

The companies that can find applicability in the system developed by Mitiga Solutions are diverse and include those belonging to the aviation, insurance, aircraft engine manufacturers and logistics sectors.
