The DEMETER project is a large-scale deployment of farmer-driven, interoperable smart farming-IoT (Internet of Things) based platforms, delivered through a series of 20 pilots across 18 countries (15 EU countries). Involving 60 partners, DEMETER adopts a multi-actor approach across the value chain (demand and supply), with 25 deployment sites, 6,000 farmers and over 38,000 devices and sensors being deployed.



About Demeter Our Aim

More information


DEMETER’s goal is to lead the digital transformation of Europe’s agri-food sector through the rapid adoption of advanced IoT technologies, data science and smart farming, ensuring its long-term viability and sustainability.

Our key objective is to empower farmers and farmer cooperatives to a) use their existing platforms and machinery to extract new knowledge to improve their decision making and b) ease the acquisition, evolution and updating of their platforms, machinery and sensors by focusing their investments where these are needed.

In the DEMETER project, pilots are used to demonstrate and evaluate how innovations and extended capabilities benefit from the interoperability mechanisms employed. Equally, these pilots monitor the evolution of the maturity level in the stakeholders involved. These pilots have been organised into five major clusters.


As part of the DEMETER project, workshops and events are organised relating to key themes and project deliverables. Upcoming events related to the project and the agri-food sector are outlined below.
