A sustainable, data-driven agriculture in Europe
The EU's Green Deal sets clear targets for a more competitive and sustainable agriculture.
This requires data-driven decision making for farmers, governments and other policy makers.
The Horizon Europe ScaleAgData project aims to bridge the data gap of observations at the local level by unlocking, integrating and upscaling the data from in-situ sensors on farms.
7 Innovation areas
Innovative sensor technology
Data sharing architecture and data governance
Satellite data augmentation
From data assimilation to service development
Data integration methodologies
Our main objectives
ScaleAgData is about
- insights in governance of complex data streams
- upscaling agri-data
- innovation in sensor technology, data analytics & EO products
for a European-wide monitoring of agri-environmental conditions.
It will contribute to the overall competitiveness and sustainability performance of the European agricultural sector:
- enabling the assessment of the innovations and data governance frameworks
- demonstrating added values of improved monitoring capabilities for a range of users
6 Research and Innovation Labs (RILabs)
6 Research and Innovation Labs will develop, test and showcase how integrating near real-time (NRT) sensor data can provide improved monitoring capabilities.
These RILabs will drive innovation, covering
- the 4 dimensions of environment: soil, water, air, living organisms (crops & livestock)
- different biogeographical zones of Europe
- available sensor data & products
HE PROJECT ScaleAgData
6 RESEARCH & INNOVATION LABS WILL DRIVE INNOVATION IN AGRICULTURAL MONITORING CAPABILITIES
With VITO as the prime, the ScaleAgData consortium further consists of 26 partners from 14 different countries!
The consortium respresents research institutes and infrastructure providers, technology and agri-tech SMEs, machinery producers and EO service providers, agri-food professional organizations, think tanks, insurance companies and data integration companies from across Europe.
