CypruSaves: Partners' Meeting (Cyprus)

Wednesday, 29 May 2024 20:37

The kickoff meeting for the CypruSaves project was held in Cyprus, and specifically at the premises of the Zambartas Winery, Agios Amvrosios, Limassol.

The partnership is comprised of:

?? Omnia 

?? Zambartas Wines

?? Benaki Phytopathological Institute

The partners discussed the vital project development practices and the actives that need to be accomplished during and after the 12 months of the project’s life span.

 

The objectives of the project are:

·       Development of a web platform for water needs and footprint estimation of vineyard products

·       Maximizing water efficiency and address water scarcity.

·       Sustainable management of soil and water resources at field level.

·       Reduction of inputs (water, pesticides, fertilizers) and production costs.

·       Boosting clustering and data/knowledge sharing between farmers and other stakeholders.

·       Enhancing digitalization of Cypriot agricultural sector.

 

The project is divided into 3 phases:

Phase 1: Design

Pilot Plan design

It aims to design a detailed pilot plan, engage the pilot farmers and gather data regarding the operational framework and their needs and problems, and finally define the technical requirements of the tools to be developed and design the pilot actions of Phase 2.

 

Phase 2: Install and Operate

Collection of field data

This aims at collecting field and operational data of the pilot ZAMBARTAS winery and the pilot fields. Soil and water samples will be collected and analyzed from all pilot fields, and soil sensors and meteorological station will be installed.

 

Development & deployment of the CypruSaves tools

This WP delivers the implementation of the CypruSaves system, a web app for water and field management. The partners will set the theoretical basis and will develop the respective equations, relationships and algorithms for water footprint estimation and the development of the web platform of the project.

 

Pilot operation

This WP will demonstrate the use of CypruSaves tools and services in a real working environment. The pilot winery and its cooperating 69 farmers will be the ecosystem of this action. The consortium will record and assess the feedback of all of them to assess functionality, drawbacks, level of satisfaction, communication and cooperation between the farmers, quality of data, etc., so to make corrective interventions (technical or communicative).

 

Multi-actors approach

This aims to ensure that CypruSaves is a user-centric project during all its Phases. Following the outcomes of WP2, this WP will implement the MAA strategy and ensure that the stakeholders will be regularly contacted for input and feedback in a balanced way. Project partners will design the appropriate actions to increase effective engagement, and to capture the opinions/views/approaches of the stakeholders during the development of the tools to ensure a co-creation process. Involved farmers will be trained in using project tools during workshops and seminars. Dissemination actions will be performed, as well.

 

Phase 3: Assess

Assessment

This will assess the results of the previous Phases and provide business support that will foster the exploitation of projects results, sustainable growth and envisages an investment round for the pilot. An Exploitation Plan and a Business Model will be delivered. Dissemination actions, MAA, and KPIs will be assessed, and the impact of the project will be quantified. The consortium will participate in events (audio calls, video calls, webinars, online trainings, virtual conferences, etc.) organised or suggested by the DEMETER Consortium, to support the development of the proposed pilots.
