Agro-Know is one of the just 50 top European ICT SMEs and web entrepreneurs that were selected by SmartAgriFood (SAF) to develop smart applications and services for agriculture using FIWARE technologies following a European wide call that resulted in over 150 applications. The outcome of this collaboration is Organic-AgriWare: a FIspace-powered web application (click here to access it) that aims at serving stakeholders in organic agriculture by providing them with quality information on topics of interest to them in a user-friendly format. The app is developed with the precious contributions from ICROFS and SEGES from Denmark.
