The Ploutos project focusses on rebalancing the value chain for the agri-food system, transforming it into one that works for the benefit of society and the environment. The project is developing a Sustainable Innovation Framework that follows a systemic approach to the agri-food sector, building on three pillars: Behavioural Innovation, Sustainable Collaborative Business Model Innovation and Data-driven Technology Innovation. Ploutos is deploying 11 innovative systemic Sustainable Innovation Pilots, based on a Multi-Actor Approach, where new innovative solutions and methodologies will be implemented, tested, assessed, and providing practical lessons learned.
ITC is managing pilot in Slovenia, focused in applying soil-passport approach and precision farming technologies to increase soil health and promote sustainable farming practices.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 101000594.
