Commercialization of an automated monitoring and control system against the olive and med fruit flies of the Mediterranean regions. (FruitFlyNet-ii)
This Project aims to facilitate clean tech sharing between research Institutions and SMEs, by commercializing prototypes and new services for effective e-monitoring and ground spray control of specific pests in Med basin.
- Support transfer of clean technological advances and innovations in the agro-environmental sector aiming in the development, demonstration, and popularization of cleaner research products and processes, and strengthening the linkages among research, producers, SMEs/SFBs, and IPM industry.
- Pre-commercialization of cleaner products and processes articulated to produce a location-aware set of services for e-monitoring and ground spray control solutions for Medfly and olive fruit fly, in order to create business opportunities for research results.
- Increase dialogue, and sustainable cross-border networking among spin-offs, SMEs/SFBs, IPM industry, and stakeholders, under the living labs' framework on innovative IPM solutions for effective environmental policy strategies based on the people-to-people approach and institutional capacity building.
The main role of the University of Cordoba (UCO) is to contribute to achieving the general objectives. However, the specific tasks of UCO within the project are:
1) UCO leads the WP6 (Pre-commercialization) and will organize the preparations towards the commercialization of the LAS prototypes based on the outputs of the other WPs. Furthermore, UCO will establish a spin-off.
2) UCO will implement a wide-area OliveFlyNet site in Spain, which aims to field data collection and digitization of all sites.
- Business plan and strategic analysis.
- Web-based interface development for LAS products.
- Enhanced demand driven technological transfer among research, industry and SMEs in the fields of clean/environmental technologies, new cultural heritage technologies and Key Enabling Technologies (KETS).
- Increased commercialization opportunities of research products in the fields of clean/environmental technologies, new cultural heritage technologies and Key Enabling Technologies (KETS).
