Continuing to work with GS1, Future Intelligence managed to compose a study which was included in the good practices of the global GS1 organization and gains relevant relevant publicity. The case study includes the combination of cultivation and Internet of Things (IoT) data with GS1 standards and how they could be operationalized and shared with the rest of the agrifood stakeholders. The specific modeling of traceability and Internet of Things IoT data is an innovative application of open standards that has a high chance of commercial success in an extremely complex sequence of processes such as those encountered in the agrifood supply chain.

Future Intelligence presented the use of FIWARE and GS1 standards to deliver farm’s upstream traceability to the stakeholders of the agrifood value chain. Orion Context Broker data coming from the field coupled with field’s notebook practices integrate transportation data coming from FORTH’s Institute of Computer Science to deliver traceability to consumers. The video presentation will be found here after the end of the workshop, https://ec.europa.eu/eip/agriculture/en/event/eip-agri-workshop-farm-data-better-farm .
The project coordinator attended one of the most important exhibitions in the agri-food sector and the most important in the region, AgroExpo 2021. It takes place every two years in Ierapetra, Crete, the country’s champion in vegetable exports and the geographical area where the higher concentration of greenhouses accounting for about 40% of the total number of the country. It confirmed the significant interest of producers for traceability applications that are expected to become mandatory in the context of international trade and the standards that govern them.
In April 2021, the Cypriot Agronomists Council of Agriculture organized an event for the application of state-of-the-art technologies as smart agricultural practices of the Modern Farm, within the framework of their training seminars. There, in addition to other Smart Agriculture applications and projects, SmartProduct was presented at a train the trainers event attended by over 120 people related to the agri-food sector.
The RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2019 Conference & Exhibition took place
on 29-30 October 2019 in Darmstadt, Germany. State of the art
technologies, directly related to the Smart Product project, such as
IoT, RFID and NFC were presented. Dr Alexandros Fragkiadakis from FORTH
attended the event.
Dr Alexandros Fragkiadakis, Collaborating Researcher at the Institute of
Computer Science of FORTH, presented the main principles of the Smart
Product project during the 12th Scientific Retreat of FORTH that took
place on the 15th and 6th of October in Patras, Greece.
SmartProduct partners met and discussed administrative, managerial and technical details regarding Supply Chain transparency and traceability. End-users role were identified and the necessary actions to obtain their inputs.
