The evolution of the agricultural sector requires the incorporation and adaptation of the latest technologies. The Horizon 2020 project “Agricultural Interoperability and Analysis System (ATLAS)” is working to promote interoperability among agricultural machinery, sensor systems, robotic applications, and data analysis tools to increase farmers’ productivity and profitability in sustainable ways. Companies can submit innovative solutions until 1 September 2021 and obtain EU funding to implement them within the ATLAS network.
The goal of ATLAS is to develop an open interoperability network for agricultural applications and build up a sustainable ecosystem for innovative data-driven agriculture. By promoting flexible combinations of agricultural machinery, sensor systems, and data analysis tools, ATLAS will overcome the current lack of interoperability and enable farmers to use the most advanced digital technology on their own. ATLAS, a joint research project funded by the Horizon2020 Research and Innovation programme, is bringing together a consortium of 30 agricultural stakeholders and researchers from seven European countries.
The consortium is now looking for innovative solutions via the 2nd open call for development of new services in alignment with agricultural use cases at the consortium’s farming operations. Until 23:59 CEST on 1 September 2021, interested companies will be able to submit their proposals at www.atlas-h2020.eu/open-call
This year, the consortium will fund up to 14 business entities by allocating an average of EUR 52,500 per use case. In addition, successful participants will become part of the ATLAS ecosystem and benefit from its extensive network of end-users, service providers, researchers, and policymakers. All the companies funded will present their solutions in front of all the project’s stakeholders and interested third parties at a Demo Day event to be held at one of the project’s five Innovation Hubs.
