TechCare is a H2020 European project coordinated by SRUC that brings together a consortium of 20 partners. TechCare is a multi-actor approach project aiming to develop appropriate business models using innovative technologies to improve welfare management for all european small ruminant (SR) systems. Based on SR welfare state-of-the-art, TechCare will undertake a multi-actor approach to encapsulate stakeholders’ expectations in terms of welfare and innovative technologies and provide them with adapted solutions, in a co-design approach.
Abinsula, as technical partner of the project, supports the activities for Italian Pilots creating technical solutions for an accessible database of information using IoT technologies. Abinsula supports the activities related to IoT technologies, starting from new sensors and pre-existing equipment to an informative data platform where the farmer can analyze data and receive alerts on livestock wellness and level of production. Abinsula will directly support the partner Agris during the creation and the use of smart equipment for livestock managing.
