Democratizing Digital Farming for All
F armtopia is a HORIZON Innovation Actions project working towards a future and agricultural landscape where ADSs (Agricultural Digital Technologies) for small farms are more easily created, deployed, and paid for.
That means the project will be fostering the co-creation of farm-suitable ADSs, and it will aim to cut costs for farmers by creating sustainable business and governance models, reusable software modules, and infrastructure that can scale up ADS.
This will democratise farming for all, especially in the EU, where the use of these technologies among farmers has been limited. Allowing access to cost-effective ADSs’ could boost further economic and environmental impact.
Empowering small farms with digital technologies
Our role in the project
Foodscale Hub (FSH) will lead Ecosystem Building and Expansion (WP4). That means the project’s results will be disseminated and communicated under Foodscale Hub’s direction. Diligent and continuous monitoring will be implemented to achieve maximum awareness and engagement among target audiences. FSH will create a roadmap for a scalable exploitation, sustainability & IPR management strategy for Farmtopia’s outcomes, covering the roll-out of ADSs and market analysis. Foodscale Hub will also lead the Open Call, promoting it on all channels including EDIHs, and build upon current/past projects, and build synergies with similar goals.
