ATLAS is a Horizon 2020 project whose goal is to achieve a new level of interoperability of agricultural machines, sensors and data services and enable farmers to have full control over their data and decide which data is shared with whom in which place.
ATLAS is developing an open, distributed, and extensible data platform based on a microservice architecture. It will offer innovative, data-driven services in agriculture to everything from single farms to an entire global community. The technology developed in ATLAS will be tested and evaluated within pilot studies at a variety of agricultural operations across Europe.
The project is now launching its first Open Call to establish these pilot studies in alignment with agricultural use cases at the farming operations of the consortium’s end-user partners. It will also establish Innovation Hubs around these pilots in order to implement a sustainable ecosystem of innovative companies.
The ATLAS Horizon 2020 project will fund 5 to 10 business entities per open call in two rounds by allocating an average of EUR 52.500 per use case.
Proposed solutions should offer clear added value to customers or stakeholders along the agricultural value chain and focus on the development of services that build on and extend the use cases carried out within the project. Interested companies registered in one of the EU Member States or one of the countries associates with H2020 are welcome to participate.
Successful participants will have the chance to become part of the ATLAS ecosystem and benefit from its extensive network of end users, service providers, researchers, and policymakers.
All the companies funded will present their solutions in front of all the project’s stakeholders and interested third parties at a Demo Day event at one of the project’s five Innovation Hubs.
