Josep Pijuan, project partner and researcher at the Applied Artificial Intelligence Unit of Eurecat, participated in the AURORAL project’s Catalan working group meeting which took place last 15th of October.
During the session, Pijuan presented to AURORAL partners the VitiGEOSS project’s main innovation, work and services developed with the objective to respond to future challenges of the worldwide food and wine industry and improve agricultural business operations at an economic, environmental and local level, integrated in a scalable platform and using technologies based on data fusion and data analytics of earth observational data sources.
AURORAL project aims to increase connectivity and deliver a digital environment of smart objects interoperable services platforms able to trigger dynamic rural ecosystems of innovation chains, applications and services. The project pilot of the Catalan wine region of Penedès has the objective to promote the energy valorisation of vine shoots pruning residues and to create new business opportunities related to the entire biomass value chain through the incorporation of various IoT applications.
The relationship between VitiGEOSS and AURORAL is strong. Both projects will continuously collaborate together sharing their research advances and developments and establishing networking synergies.
