Partnership between Wikifarmer and Ploutos
Wikifarmer is always interested in building partnerships with organizations, universities, institutions, and projects worldwide. Our main goal is to democratize agriculture; we believe networking can help us achieve this. Wikifarmer and Ploutos are working together to rebalance the agri-food value chain.
Ploutos is an EU-funded project, which is comprised by 33 partners and aims to rebalance the agri-food value chain and enhance its economic, social and environmental sustainability. In order to achieve this, the project will develop a Sustainable Innovation Framework, which will follow a systemic approach to the agri-food sector and build on a combination of behavioural innovation, collaborative business models and data-driven technological services. Based on this Framework, Ploutos will deploy 11 Sustainable Innovation Pilots throughout 13 European countries, where new innovation solutions and methodologies will be applied, tested, evaluated and practical lessons will be derived. Moreover, a virtual Innovation Academy will be set up, offering stakeholders the opportunity to attend a series of applied experiments and good practices related to the sustainability of the agri-food value chain. The Innovation Academy of Ploutos will be the mechanism for the design, support, presentation, and promotion of all the implemented innovations, ensuring their maximum impact. This will stand as the legacy of the project, integrating all the information and best practices that will transform the agri-food sector and make it more competitive, efficient and sustainable.
