DIVINE: A cutting-edge initiative for boosting a data economy in agriculture
DIVINE is an innovative project that aims to empower farmers to transition to more sustainable and profitable agriculture practices, while also contributing to climate change mitigation and adaptation. That is achieved by developing cutting-edge tools and technologies, which enable farmers to optimize their production practices and reduce their environmental impact. This includes precision farming tools that use real-time data to make better informed decisions, as well as smart irrigation systems that can reduce water usage and improve crop yields.
Additionally, the initiative is exploring new business models, such as digital platforms and e-commerce, that can help farmers access new markets and increase their profitability, connect directly with consumers and develop new ways of collaborating with other stakeholders in the food value chain.
Overall, DIVINE has the potential to be a game-changer for European agriculture, helping farmers to overcome the challenges they face and unlock new opportunities for growth and sustainability.
DIVINE is a three-year research project, funded by the European Commission under Horizon Europe’s “Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment” cluster. It involves a broad range of partners providing diverse expertise.
