Big Data for healthier cows
In June 2018, the Austrian Research Promotion Agency FFG–the national funding agency for industrial research and development in Austria–has decided to support a project proposal put together by the Austrian Cattle Breeders’ Association (ZAR) within the framework COMET (Competence Centers for Excellent Technologies). COMET is an Austrian science program launched in 2006 to foster the cooperation and knowledge transfer between small, medium and large enterprises, universities, Universities of Applied Sciences, competence centers and research institutions.
The project, with the beautiful acronym “D4Dairy” (“Digitalisation, Data integration, Detection and Decision support in Dairying”) connects dozens of partners from agricultural organizations and farmers through industry and smaller size enterprises down to various scientific institutions.
The Complexity Science Hub Vienna will deal with the data analysis of the project.
On November 5, the project D4Dairy officially starts with a Kick-off-Meeting.
