SPACEBEL Goes DataBio
SPACEBEL is bringing its expertise to the Horizon 2020 EU funded ICT-15-2016-2017 Big Data PPP DataBio project, EC grant agreement 732064. This new European project deploys the benefits of Big Data technologies in the raw material production for the data driven bioeconomy industry taking into account various responsibility and sustainability issues. The bioeconomy comprises the production of renewable biological resources from land and sea and their conversion into food, energy and bio-based products.
The DataBio project pursues the following goals:
- Set up a Big DataBio platform suitable for different industries and user profiles on top of existing infrastructures and solutions;
- Foster the wide-spread use of the DataBio platform technologies in the agriculture, forestry, aquaculture and fishery sectors;
- Offer the opportunity to the European ICT industry and Earth Observation stakeholders – including SMEs – to play an active role in the European and international Bioeconomy Big Data market;
- Ensure interoperability and easy implementation of innovative tools, services and applications using the Big DataBio platform.
SPACEBEL is leader of the Earth Observation and Geospatial Data & Services work package. We are also involved in the Forestry Pilot work package.
