Building an Interoperable, Data-Driven, Innovative and Sustainable European Agri-Food Sector
Programme: Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme
Project: DEMETER – Building an Interoperable, Data-Driven, Innovative and Sustainable European Agri-Food Sector
Timeline: September 2019 – February 2023
Project budget: 14.998.282,38 EUR
DEMETER is a large-scale project focused in deployment of farmer centric interoperable smart farming-IoT based platforms delivered through a series of 20 pilots across 18 countries. Involving 60 partners, DEMETER adopts a Multi-Actor Approach across the value chain (demand and supply), with 25 deployment sites, 6,000 farmers and over 38,000 devices and sensors being deployed, while participants involved coming from different production sectors (dairy, meat, vegetables, fruit and arable crops), production systems (conventional and organic) and different farm sizes and types, optimizing the data analysis obtained across multiple farms.
ITC is responsible for implementing and testing IoT technologies at Slovenian farmers: orchards, vineyards and poultry farms. The implementation is backed up by the DIH network and services, making pilot implementations available for demonstrations in the wider pan-European community.
