- Work Package ‘Project Management and Coordination’ oversees the project as a whole and ensures the objectives are met on time and within budget.
- Work Package ‘Trial Management’ organizes the execution of the trials, demonstrating/validating the business case of IoT technologies for a large number of application areas as found in the use cases.
- Work Package ‘IoT’ guides use cases on how to leverage existing IoT technologies, approaches, methodologies and guidelines to facilitate their collaboration and enable technology uptake by end-users and IoT solution providers.
- Work Package ‘Business Support’ assesses the use case innovations’ market readiness, defines business models and prepares market entry.
- Work Package ’Ecosystem Development’ conceptualizes and implements the IoF2020 communication/dissemination activities in view of a sustainable ecosystem for the long-term application of IoT technologies in the agri-food sector.
- Work Package ‘Ethics and Responsible Design’ improves acceptability of IoT innovation in the use cases while analysing and monitoring the ethical requirements that the partners of IoF2020 must comply with.
