The 2nd meeting of the Horizon 2020 RECAP Project, hosted by ETAM SA, will take place in Heraklion, Crete, from Thursday the 3rd until Friday the 4th of November 2016.

The RECAP project aims to develop an improved remote monitoring of CAP obligations and to supplement the in-field inspections procedures eliminating several of the forementioned burdens. Furthermore, RECAP will offer farmers a tool supporting them to comply with regulations imposed by the CAP, providing personalised information for simplifying the interpretation of complex regulations, and early alerts on potential non-conformities. RECAP will allow agricultural consultants to access data available in the platform, subject to security and privacy policies, and to develop their own services within the platform using design tools, libraries and communication with the database under an open approach. The overall objective is to develop and pilot test a platform for the delivery of public services that will enable the improved implementation of the CAP, targeting public Paying Agencies, agricultural consultants and farmers.

The Horizon 2020 RECAP will be a cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) platform which will:

    • collect information from open satellite data,
    • collect information through farmers’ mobile devices,
    • collect information from commercial channels of satellite data providers.

The project consortium consists of Draxis Environmental S.A., Instituto Navarro de Technologias e Infraestructuras Agroalimentarias SA, Payment and Control Agency for Guidance and Guarantee Community Aid, National Paying Agency, Viesoji Istaiga Lietuvos Zemes Ukio Konsultavimo Tarnyba, Strutt & Parker LLP, Inosens Doo Novi Sad, University of Reading, National Observatory of Athens, Iniciativas Innovadoras Sal, ETAM S.A. and CREVIS SPRL.
