Scope / Objectives

The overall objective of the project is to foster data use and reuse in the context of the European Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), and to improve its accessibility and usability by farmers, policy makers and third parties such as SMEs.

The project will provide an open community platform for sharing solutions in the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS) domain for the CAP through the Linked Open Data paradigm. This will include generic services to facilitate end-user access to HPC capabilities by managing different HPC providers via a technological architecture that processes service level agreements to seamlessly assign jobs to the different providers involved in Open IACS infrastructure.

More specifically, the project will:

Network of LOD

Design a network of interoperable Linked Open Data (LOD) End-points considering information for Agri-environmental management of IACS policies.

Common agri-environmental LOD infrastructure

Implement the common agri-environmental LOD infrastructure for IACS policy management by means of increasing HPCs capabilities

Useful infraestructure

Demonstrate the usefulness of this infrastructure through its application in different scenarios of use.

Expected Outcomes

Facilitate information

Facilitate the provision of information services for citizens, farmers and policy makers to support farmers’ activities and decision-making.

Management of biodiversity

Improve the management of biodiversity associated with the development of crops in the scope of the CAP.

Climate change mitigation

Facilitate climate change mitigation, and adaptation to its effects.
