IoF2020 (Internet of Food and Farm 2020)
IoF2020 is dedicated to accelerating the uptake of IoT technologies in the European farming and food chains and ultimately strengthening their competitiveness and sustainability. How? By demonstrating, together with end-users, the use of IoT in 19 use-cases spread throughout Europe, and focusing on 5 areas: dairy, meat, arable crops, fruits and vegetables.
The project builds on and leverages the ecosystem of previous key projects (e.g. FIWARE, IoT-A) to foster the end-user acceptance and adoption of IoT Solutions in agriculture. At the heart of the project, 19 use cases distributed in 5 trials: Arable, Dairy, Fruit, Vegetables and Meat.
Under each trial, IoT integrators will make the business case for innovative IoT solutions applied to a large number of areas. A lean multi-actor approach focusing on user acceptance, stakeholder engagement and the development of sustainable business models will boost technology and market readiness levels and push end-user adoption to the next stage.
