Just like the tiny yet sturdy little plant it takes the name from, the CAPSELLA project will deepen the roots of sustainability in agri-food systems by harnessing scientific and local knowledge, people’s and innovation skills around the theme of agro-biodiversity by making use of novel, improved and demand-driven ICT solutions.

CAPSELLA's main outcomes will be:
  • Innovative tailor-made data driven solutions for farmers, small communities, networks and clusters 
  • Open data driven innovation in the agri-food through a comprehensive open data catalogue 
  • A cloud based platform to support community based initiatives concerning biodiversity in agri-food systems and food quality
  • Concrete and bottom-up pilots and ICT applications for three different scenarios: Seed, Field and Food

CAPSELLA will engage with farming communities and networks, in order to understand and collect their needs and requirements through a buttom up approach. This way CAPSELLA will try to provide tailor-made solutions that hopefully address the issues of the farmers.
In this light, the project will held its first awareness raising workshop in Volterra, Tuscany on the 30 & 32 of May. Its scope is to bring together agrobiodiversity farmers, networks, clusters and stakeholders to raise awareness and collect their needs and requirements on ICT future solutions to be developed.
