SQAT

ABOUT THE
PROJECT

SQAT is a 3.5-year project, funded under the Horizon Europe Programme, that focuses on Implementing Smart Farming Applications using EO Data, Soil Sensors & Robotics.

MAIN OBJECTIVES:

  • Improving access to better soil data in agriculture and leveraging its use to make farming more efficient and profitable.
  • Combining advanced technologies to ensures accuracy, quality, and cost-effectiveness of high-resolution soil data (this includes the unique benefits of Copernicus and Galileo satellite data).
  • Using novel data we produce to enable new precision agriculture applications.
  • Creating and bringing to market project results.

Objective: To deliver the SQAT smart soil mapping system that generates robust soil parameter maps
and calculate site-specific and demand-oriented soil management maps.

WP3 ENABLE: Data Integration &
Smart Farming Applications

Objective: To integrate the novel data from SQAT into Smart Farming Applications to deliver valuable
and actionable information to users.

WP4 GOVERN: Data Management and Governance

Objective: To address key aspects of data management and data governance across project activities
and the data workflows of its expected results.

WP5 PROMOTE: Engagement,
Communication & Dissemination

Objective: To implement a coherent project communication effort in engaging key stakeholders
and to disseminate key results to maximise project impact.

WP6 LAUNCH: Business Modelling,
Commercialisation and Brokerage

Objective: To catalyse uptake and commercialisation of key project results by consortium members
and other stakeholders in order to maximise the impact of the project.
