Horizon Europe project QuantiFarm’s mission is really challenging, but when the right individuals come together at the appropriate time, nothing is impossible.
Our consortium is consisted of people from many different countries and backgrounds. Its members come from a diverse range of industries, which adds to the project’s clear, comprehensive point of view that is founded on diversity.
The QuantiFarm consortium incorporates all relevant actors in the agri-food value chain that are necessary to reach the project’s objectives and is well balanced in terms of consortium partners’ expertise, type of entity, and geographical distribution. Specifically, it consists of 32 partners, representing universities, research institutes, agri-cooperatives and farmers, farmers’ advisors, DIHs, DATs providers, software developers, certifications bodies and policy makers. This multi-actor approach is essential to bring together all the related stakeholders and engage them in co-designing and validating a framework for assessing the impacts of DATs in agriculture and a set of innovative tools, services and recommendations for farmers, advisors and policy makers, aiming to enable the further deployment of digital and data technologies in agriculture as key enablers for enhancing the sustainability (economic, environmental and social) performance and competitiveness of the sector. To materialise its objectives, Quantifarm brings together
- European research institutes and universities, with significant research capacity in economics, motivations and behaviour analysis, assessment of digital technologies, advisors’ training, policy design and sustainable innovation and DATs
- Farmers associations and organisations representing farmers, engaging farmers in working in the TCs, co-designing and testing the key project outcomes and participating in the demo events;
