ICT open data Solutions for empowering sustainable farming
For many, agriculture and ICTs are distant worlds and even totally opposing fields. But, this should not be a given assumption anymore. Thanks to the CAPSELLA project, ICT solutions can be effectively used by farmers in order to actively promote more sustainable agricultural production systems.
The CAPSELLA project is succeeding in putting the farmers at the centre of technological development: all the tools developed by the project answer to specific requests of the farmers’ communities and have been developed together with them.
The project opens up also to software developers, through ad hoc Hackathons: participants have the opportunity to win an Acceleration program for their proposals. The acceleration program includes a three-months period of Bootcamp, and after this, selected developers will access the incubation phase, consisting in another three months during which they can benefit of free offices, technical and legal assistance, further business training, industry mentoring, services, and fundraising aid.
In the end, by offering innovative ICT solutions able to respond to the needs of local communities, CAPSELLA will create and improve individual and collective interest and awareness for agro-biodiversity. This will be useful for those already working in the field, but also for all the citizens interested in the quality of local products and in environmental sustainability issues.
