The World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO) is one of the core partners of “DEMETER”, the ground-breaking project which intends to transform Europe’s agri-food sector digitally and not least increase on-farm profitability, lower farming’s ecological footprint and decreases the use of natural resources.

Funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020, “DEMETER” embrace in one consortium 60 partners, among which the World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO), as representative of the world farming community.

Named as the goddess of the harvest and agriculture, presiding over grains and the fertility of the earth, the project will show how cutting-edge ICT technologies can be optimised to support sustainable and safe farming and food production systems.

Coordinated by Waterford Institute of Technology, the project will be brought to a conclusion by February 2023.
