Up to €150,000 equity-free funding per consortia available per successful project.
The DEMETER Open Call #2 – DEPLOY aims to increase the outreach of the DEMETER value proposition by funding small consortia of 2-3 partners for the deployment of new, high-value pilots in the agri-food sector. These pilots will focus on employing DEMETER methodologies and technologies, addressing clear farmer needs, with particular focus on EU geographic regions not represented within DEMETER pilots. This will expand the technological and/or business coverage of the project, towards digitalising and boosting the European agro-business sector. European countries not covered by DEMETER pilots are Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, France, Hungary, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Slovakia and Sweden.
DEMETER currently has 20 pilots running that can be an example for potential applicants to develop similar or different pilots to be funded under Open Call #2 – DEPLOY.
