The DataBio project was launched in January 2017 and has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. Its main goal is to show the benefits of big data technologies in the raw material production from agriculture, forestry and fishery for the bioeconomy industry to produce food, energy and biomaterials responsibly and sustainably.
DataBio addresses this issue by designing and deploying innovative big data solutions based on partners‘ infrastructures, and demonstrating their power through agriculture, forestry and fishery pilots. The solutions include big data acquisition and curation, predictive analytics and machine learning, real-time analytics and stream processing as well as advanced visualisations.
MEEO is one of the 48 partners from 17 countries (including 14 EU countries, Switzerland, Norway and Israel) that are part of the DataBio consortium and it is actively contributing to the project through its experience in Earth Observation and Climate Data Services, supporting the Agriculture, the Forestry and the Fishery pilots in the identification of requirements concerning meteorological and climate parameters and more specifically in the field of insurance for agriculture.
