DEMETER is a H2020 project focused on large-scale deployment of farmer-driven, interoperable smart farming-IoT (Internet of Things) based platforms, delivered through a series of 20 pilots across 18 countries (15 EU countries). Involving 60 partners, DEMETER adopts a multi-actor approach across the value chain (demand and supply), with 25 deployment sites, 6,000 farmers and over 38,000 devices and sensors being deployed.
The first of the DEMETER Open Calls, for which we use the label “DEVELOP”, has just been launched and will close on November, 18th at 17.00 (CET). The aim of the call is to attract and engage startups/SMEs with technology products that can be implemented within the agro-business sector.

These are the 5 topics that will be addressed in this Open Call:
1. Soil workability and humidity monitoring
