    Feed-a-Gene aims to better adapt different components of monogastric livestock production systems (i.e., pigs, poultry and rabbits) to improve the overall efficiency and to reduce the environmental impact. This involves the development of new and alternative feed resources and feed technologies, the identification and selection of robust animals that are better adapted to fluctuating conditions, and the development of feeding techniques that allow optimizing the potential of the feed and the animal.

    ERMES (An Earth obseRvation Model based RicE information Service) aims to develop a prototype of downstream services based on the assimilation of EO and in situ data within crop modeling solutions. Two services are foreseen: Regional Rice Service (RRS) customised for providing public authorities with an agro-monitoring system for crop mapping, yield estimating and risk forecast and Local Rice Service (LRS) for the private sector (farmers, agro-services) providing added value information on yield variability, risk alert and crop damage at farm scale.

    In the future European farmers will have to effectively manage information on and off their farms to improve economic viability and to reduce environmental impact. All three levels, in which agricultural activities need to be harmonized with economical and environmental constraints, require integrated ICT adoption: (i) improvement of farm efficiency; (ii) integration of public goods provided by farming into management strategies; (iii) relating to the environmental and cultural diversity of Europe’s agriculture by addressing the region-farm interaction.

    Agriculture sector is accountable for 30% of the total water consumption in Europe, but reaches up to 70% of total water consumption in several European southern countries. In recent years, most of the efforts have been focused on water efficiency, without taking care of energy aspects, resulting in some cases on a significant increase in energy consumption, both per irrigated surface and per volume unit of water. The WEAM4i project will mainly address 2 of the priorities of the EIP on Water: “Water-Energy nexus” and “Decision support systems (DSS) and monitoring”.

    VinBot responds to a need to boost the quality of European wines by implementing precision viticulture (PV) tools in the face of serious market threats worldwide and structural shortcomings within the EU wine sector. Wine producer associations have no control over yield management throughout their members’ vineyards, which leads to reduced quality wine at the association level.

    "Due to climate related changes, longer dry periods for European farmers and without irrigation the risk of a volatile harvests will rise, that is the reason for a tendency across

    Europe to irrigate fields. The need for innovative irrigated systems is to minimize water consumption and costs. Also in times of limited water the project will be lucrative.

    Dairy farming has adopted automatic milking (AM) at an accelerating rate for reasons such as improvement in lifestyle, less physical work, attracting skilled labour and increased profitability (higher milk production, lower labour costs). Up to now, indoor feeding systems have been well adapted to AM, however grazing has not, leading to a decrease in grazing on AM farms. Grazing has many advantages for economy, environment, animal welfare and product quality, so it is essential that integrated grazing and AM dairy systems are developed.

    The aim of the proposed project is to evaluate the development of a new and disruptive solution directed to Viticulture sector. In this project, ENERMETER intends to evaluate the market potential and execute a detailed technical and technological analysis to respond to some of the most pressing challenges of the actual market. The goal is to evaluate the potential of a solution the will represent a paradigm change in tools and technique to extract information about of vineyards cultures, important to the quality of the resulting product (wine).

    Uncertainties in water availability, rising fertilizer and energy costs and increasing demand for renewable raw materials impose serious challenges on the primary sector with far-reaching implications. Irrigation practices put more and more pressure on scarce freshwater resources and mineral fertilizers are often overused leading to environmental problems and heavy impacts on the production costs of producers. Increasing resource efficiency, productivity and competitiveness of agricultural practitioners are crucial for addressing the aforementioned societal challenges.
