Summary and objectives

TRACK will aim at creating a favourable interregional ecosystem to stimulate i) new innovative solutions fitting specific requirements of agri-food chain and ii) associated joint investments toward advanced agrifood industry 4.0. It will be achieved through the modernization of the vegetal-based agrifood chain by intensifying cross-pollination between ICT / traceability and bid data (TBD) sectors, in priority SMEs, and actors of the agrifood industry. TRACK will increase the competitivity of these actors, in close connection with Agro-Food S3 Platform on « Traceability and Big Data », by tracking opportunities to develop and strengthen data collection and big data in the agrifood sector to boost agrifood industry 4.0. TRACK involves a consortium of 5 clusters partners constituted with a special care to both i) guarantee a strong complementarity regarding domains of interest, crossing Agriculture and ICTs, geographic coverage and types of services provided to SMEs and ii) ensure some future productive interclustering activities.

Results expected

The specific objectives of TRACK are:

  1. Building a common vision of the challenges to face and the bottlenecks to the adaption of new technologies for improving efficiency and traceability in various vegetal-based agrifood chains (WP 2)
  2. Proposing a joint implementation plan to stimulate innovation, business and investment for better efficiency and traceability in agrifood chain (WP 2, 3 & 4)
  3. Creating an interregional ecosystem for cross-pollination between ICT/TBD and agrifood sector, and the associated tools to develop cooperation between actors (WP 2)
  4. Highlighting and making emergence pilot projects to facilitate the development of promising solutions (WP 3)
  5. Providing dedicated support to a selection of high potential ICT SMEs to speed up the deployment of their solutions in the agrifood sector (WP 4)
  6. Interlinking and creating synergies with other national and European initiatives to improve the impacts of TRACK actions and sustain them in the time (WP 5)

TRACK work program combines Cluster to Cluster (C to C) actions to create and strengthen a favourable interregional ecosystem and Business to Business (B to B) actions to make cross-fertilization concrete between ICT/TBD actors and agrifood actors and generate collaborations and investments.
