ATLAS Open Calls
The goal of ATLAS is to develop an open interoperability network for agricultural applications and build up a sustainable ecosystem for innovative data-driven agriculture. By promoting flexible combinations of agricultural machinery, sensor systems, and data analysis tools, ATLAS will overcome the current lack of interoperability and enable farmers to use the most advanced digital technology on their own. ATLAS, a joint research project funded by the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme, is bringing together a consortium of 30 agricultural stakeholders and researchers from seven European countries.
The consortium has run two open calls to choose innovative solutions for development of new services in alignment with agricultural use cases at the consortium’s farming operations. Chosen companies have received seed funding for the services they provide through the ATLAS interoperability network. Winning solutions offer clear added value to customers or other stakeholders along the agricultural value chain and focus on the integration of services that build on and extend the use cases carried out within the project.
Open Call 2020
In 2020, the ATLAS consortium received 89 proposals for its first open call and chose six winners to receive EUR 305,000 to implement their services within the ATLAS network.
Open Call 2021
In 2021, the ATLAS consortium received 68 proposals for the second round of the open calls and chose 12 companies to receive grants in a total of EUR 635,000 for the implementation of their solutions within the ATLAS network.
