  6. 6. Dissemination level: Public Page 6 3 About DataBio-project DataBio-project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 732064. Topic: ICT-15-2016-2017; Big Data PPP: Large Scale Pilot actions in sectors best benefitting from data-driven innovation. The main goal of the DataBio project is to show the benefits of Big Data technologies in the raw material production from agriculture, forestry and fishery/aquaculture for the bioeconomy industry to produce food, energy and biomaterials responsibly and sustainably. DataBio proposes to deploy a state of the art, big data platform on top of the existing partners’ infrastructure and solutions – the Big DATABIO Platform. The work will be continuous cooperation of experts from end user and technology provider companies, from bioeconomy and technology research institutes, and of other partners. In the pilots also associated partners and other stakeholders will be actively involved. The selected pilots and concepts will be transformed into pilot implementations using co- innovative approaches and tools where the bioeconomy sector end users, experts and other stakeholders will give input to the user and sector domain understanding for the requirement specifications for ICT, Big Data and Earth Observation experts and for other solution providers in the consortium. Based on the preparation and requirement specifications work, the pilots are implemented using and selecting the best suitable market ready or almost market ready Big Data and Earth Observation methods, technologies, tools and services to be integrated to the common Big DATABIO Platform. During the pilots the close cooperation continues and feedback from the bioeconomy sector user companies will be harnessed in the technical and methodological upgrades for pilot implementations. Based on the pilot results and the new solutions also new business opportunities are expected. In addition during the pilots the end users are participating in trainings to learn how to use the solutions and developers also outside the consortium will be active in the Hackathons to design and develop new tools, services and application for the platform. Databio’s expected achievements include but are not limited to: ● Demonstrate increase of productivity in bioeconomy ● Increase of market share of Big Data technology providers in the bioeconomy sector ● More than double the use of Big Data technology in bioeconomy ● Leveraging additional target sector investments by a factor of >5 ● More than 100 organizations in demonstrations ● Liaison with other Big Data actions ● Closely working with BDVA
