DEMETER approach towards an agricultural interoperability space
The latest advances of technologies such as IoT, AI and Big Data, among others, have boosted the adoption of smart farming practices that emphasise the use of ICT in farm management processes to exploit the available data. This, however, has led to an explosion of smart farming solutions and data availability that brings new challenges...
DIVINE: Demonstrating the value of data sharing to boost the agri-data economy
DIVINE is a three-year research project, funded by the European Commission through Horizon Europe’s “Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment” cluster. The project comprises fifteen partners from eight countries and will demonstrate the cost-benefit analysis of data sharing across four pilots ranging from dairy and pork to olives and almonds. A “Common European Agricultural Data...
Data issues impacting technology adoption
Smart Farming Technology (SFT) has been recognised as a potential solution to many of the challenges that the agriculture sector is facing. Crucial to the adoption of SFT is understanding farmers’ needs, interests and concerns regarding the adoption and use of such technology. In late 2021, DEMETER conducted a survey to better understand the barriers...
Standardisation for results’ continuity and impact leverage
Achieving excellent project outcomes like DEMETER naturally brings questions about the solutions’ sustainability and integration into the broader ecosystem. One of the scaling factors that leverage vast adoption potential is solution accessibility for the general community. Standardisation is one of the tools that multiplicate potential, ensuring stability, lowering the cost of implementation, and avoiding vendor...

How to deploy a real-world Agriculture Data Space
In this article, our project partner, Engineering, discuss how to deploy a real-world Agriculture Data Space in practice. Overview of the European context Data-driven innovation plays a key role in the current transformation of our society and organizations, starting with data coming from users involved in the use of social networking tools, web and mobile...
Fostering interoperability between DEMETER and other smart farming communities: the AFARCLOUD case
One of the goals of DEMETER is to be interoperable with other existing smart farming-IoT based solutions, so that both communities can exchange information and services for a mutually beneficial collaboration. In this blog we will analyse the interoperability between DEMETER and AFarCloud platforms, which is being demonstrated in use case no. 1 (UC#1) of...
