ATLAS Horizon 2020 looking for agtech projects to fund

The ATLAS Horizon 2020 project will fund 5 to 10 business entities by allocating € 1,050,000.

The ATLAS Horizon 2020 project is a EU project that aims to achieve a new level of interoperability of agricultural machines, sensors and data services. The project is also to enable farmers to have full control over their data and decide which data is shared with whom in which place.

Data-driven services

ATLAS is currently developing an open, distributed, and extensible data platform based on a microservice architecture. It is to offer innovative, data-driven services in agriculture to everything from single farms to an entire global community. The technology developed in ATLAS will be tested and evaluated within pilot studies at a variety of agricultural operations across Europe.

The ATLAS Horizon 2020 project “Agricultural Interoperability and Analysis System” will fund 5 to 10 business entities per open call by allocating € 1,050,000 in two rounds (2020 and 2021).

ATLAS project looking for proposals

ATLAS is looking for proposals that seek to develop new and innovative services by making use of the technical foundation the ATLAS platform provides. The proposed projects should demonstrate specific value for either consumers or stakeholders along the agricultural value chain.

The work carried out in these projects should have a thematic focus on developing services that build on and extend the use cases carried out within the ATLAS project.

SMEs, start-ups, and farmers legally established and based in one of the EU Member States or an H2020 associated country (as defined in the H2020 rules of participation) are welcome to apply.

ATLAS will provide technology to access various kinds of data, including:

  • Interfaces to on-board sensor data from agricultural machines
  • Interfaces to data from in-field sensor networks
  • Interfaces to data from data analysis services
  • On-board computers and runtime environments for running applications
  • Access to data repositories

Successful participants will have the chance to become part of the ATLAS ecosystem and benefit from its extensive network of end users, service providers, researchers, and policymakers.
