Agro-Know joins FREME’s kick-off meeting


The kickoff meeting of the FREME “Open Framework of E-Services for Multilingual and Semantic Enrichment of Digital Content” project,  will take place at Berlin, Germany, between 5-6 of February 2015. FREME is a project co-funded by the EC under the H2020 Framework Programme for Research & Innovation and its activities are steered towards the creation of an open innovative commercial-grade framework of the e services for multilingual and semantic enrichment of digital content. The choice of the project’s acronym is not out of chance since “freme” means “advantage, gain, benefit” in Old English. Therefore, FREME will endow digital content managers with the advantages and benefits which brings to the market. Having as a focus the domains of Agriculture and food safety, Arts, Economics, Industries and Technology, Politics and Administration, FREME will provide its innovative services by striving to achieve the following objectives:

  • Innovation in content and data value chains
  • Integration and transfer of technologies
  • Validation within real world business cases
  • Innovation in business models and growth of business
  • Extension of job profiles and facilitating acquisition of new skills

FREME_LogoIn this context, our Chief Operations Officer, Giannis Stoitsis, and our Project Manager, Andreas Drakos, are on their way to the kickoff meeting. Agro-Know’s roles, as described at the project’s Technical Annex, will be the following: We will be steering the enhancement of the cross language sharing and access to open agricultural and food data business care. We will also contribute to the validation of FREME objectives by using public sector information and users from governmental organizations and individuals interested in societal challenges. Finally, in order to address the first and forth objective we are tasked to establish new cross-lingual data value chains and help to grow Agro-Know’s business across borders and languages respectively. As soon as the partners discuss during the kick-off meeting, a fine-tuning in the expected work will take place, leading to more specific actions with concrete outcomes.
