Cybernetica signs grant agreement with European Commission to boost bioeconomy productivity
Cybernetica has signed a grant agreement with European Commission to participate in the consortium for Data-Driven Bioeconomy (DataBio). The consortium connects 48 organisations across Europe, Cybernetica being the only participant from Estonia. According to Dr. Margus Freudenthal, lead architect for DataBio in Cybernetica, the aim of the project is to assess how European bioeconomy could gain from implementing technological capabilities and to provide practical applications. „The main role for Cybernetica is to demonstrate how the use of interoperability, which today is perceived mainly as the enabler for e-Government services, can also be implemented in other domains,“ Dr Freudenthal explains. The main goal of DataBio is to show the benefits of Big Data technologies in the raw material production for the bioeconomy industry through several objectives: building a versatile DataBio platform, ensuring efficient utilisation of existing data sets, ensuring wide-spread use of DataBio platform technologies in agriculture, forestry and fishery sectors, opening the possibilities for European ICT and Earth Observation (EO) companies to participate in the global BigData market and to ensure interoperability and easy setup of new multivendor applications utilising the DataBio platform. „We have implemented our UXP technology to build interoperability ecosystems in several countries, to facilitate efficiency and transparency within the government. DataBio allows us to demonstrate that utilising the same principles in agriculture, forestry and fishery sectors to enable data-driven decisionmaking, dramatically increases productivity and has measurable impact to both the economy and the environment,“ Dr. Freudenthal says. The project proposal estimates the possible growth of productivity of target sectors to up to 20%, while positively affecting related industries as well. DataBio project is funded under the Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. UXP (Unified eXchange Platform) is Cybernetica’s interoperability technology which allows secure data exchange between organisations and has been implemented as the e-Government backbone in several countries, most notably as the core technology for Estonia’s X-Road.
