Open Call 2018
The internet of things (IoT) has a revolutionary potential. A smart web of sensors, actuators, cameras, robots, drones and other connected devices allows for an unprecedented level of control and automated decision-making. The project Internet of Food & Farm 2020 (IoF2020) explores the potential of IoT-technologies for the European food and farming industry.
The goal is ambitious
To make precision farming a reality and to take a vital step towards a more sustainable food value chain. With the help of IoT technologies higher yields and better-quality produce are within reach. Pesticide and fertilizer use will drop or phased out and overall efficiency is optimized. IoT technologies also enable better traceability of food, leading to increased food safety.
Join our consortium
Nineteen use-cases organised around five trials (arable, dairy, fruits, meat and vegetables) develop, test and demonstrate IoT technologies in an operational environment in Europe, benefiting both conventional and organic agri-food chains. However, the nineteen use cases form a good starting point but are still a beginning.
Therefore, IoF2020 is preparing an open call that will allow us to ask new teams to join our journey within the Internet of Food and Farm to enlarge the IoF2020 ecosystem and create more impact on the European farming and food sector.
More information will follow soon!
