Demeter Open Call #2 – DEPLOY

DEMETER aims to empower farmers and farmer cooperatives to a) better exploit their existing operational context, i.e. the platforms, machinery, sensors they have, to extract new knowledge on which they can improve their decisions and b) ease the acquisition, evolution and update of their context by focusing their investments where these are needed, based on their goals measured by key performance indicators (KPIs) that they select.

The selected consortia will deploy high-value pilots in the agri-food sector, employing DEMETER methodologies and technologies, addressing clear farmers’ needs, with particular focus on EU geographic regions not represented within DEMETER pilots, expanding the technological and/or business coverage of the DEMETER project, towards digitalising and boosting the European agro-business.
