The BioHorizon project of the Horizon 2020 organized the”BioHorizon SC2 and KET-B Brokerage Event“, which aimed at networking organizations that participate in proposals of Horizon 2020 calls. The event was held on July 3 2019 in Brussels, as a collaborative effort of the Societal Challenge 2 (SC2) National Contact Points (NCPs) from across Europe.
The event took place in the wider context of the Commission’s presentation of the new version of the SC2 Work Programme for 2018-2020, which aims to provide insights into the upcoming calls and the individual topics.
Nikos Kalatzis, NEUROPUBLIC‘s Technical Project Manager, was invited to make a presentation in Session 1: Sustainable Food Security of the event.
During his presentation titled “Solutions for smart farming and digital agriculture” which was the event’s first presentation by an SME, Mr. Kalatzis referred to the gaiasense smart farming system as an efficient mean for digitizing agriculture, presented the future research objectives of the company and mentioned NEUROPUBLIC’s European projects, in which gaiasense plays an active role:
- Η2020 SmartAgriHubs
- H2020 Internet of Food & Farm 2020 (IoF2020)

In addition, Mr. Kalatzis referred to the thematic areas of high interest for NEUROPUBLIC, as they will be the ones in which the company’s new proposals will be submitted, based on the gaiasense smart farming services.
The aim of NEUROPUBLIC’s presentation was to highlight the features and characteristics of gaiasense, raising awareness among potential partners in consortia to work on common proposals on the digitization of the agricultural production, the development and provision of digital services for the whole agrifood value chain and the integrated management of the use of pesticides, among others, to be submitted in the corresponding upcoming calls of Horizon 2020.
