The European Union’s Data-Driven Bioeconomy (DataBio) project has announced the launch of 26 different pilot trials, which are already underway in 17 countries. They will provide “real world” insights relevant for policymakers and producers – the farmers, foresters and fishermen engaged in Europe’s bioeconomy.

DataBio is using Big Data technologies to support the growth of Europe’s bioeconomy. More specifically, the project is handling massive flows of data collected through sensors placed in the soil and air, as well as from aerial and satellite imagery.

The DataBio consortium includes 48 partners from 17 countries and over 100 associated organisations.
