  • Unlocking the innovation potential

We aim to create a virtual space where practical knowledge is generated to last. The Ploutos Innovation Academy (PIA) is a virtual space where mutual knowledge exchanges around sustainability-oriented innovations (SOIs) take place. Experts from different disciplines and actors within the agrifood supply chain, who are engaged in the implementation of Sustainable Innovation Pilots (SIPs), participate in these exchanges. Additionally, actors within the agri-food supply chain, involved in different SIPs, also exchange experiences and best practices to help cope with common challenges.

  • Transforming EU agriculture

The most accredited source of free agricultural knowledge (Wikifarmer) collaborates with Ploutos! The result is an informative article that explores the ways in which gaiasense SF can manage pest control and ensure a healthy crop.
