As part of the EIT’s Crisis Response Initiative, this activity directly contributes to the European Union’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Grana Padano and Parmigiano Reggiano areas have been highly affected by the current pandemic. Smart-ET will use COVID-19 data from farms and existing models to predict variations in dairy production and market feed costs, helping to:
- Reorganise dairy production and supply rapidly and efficiently during pandemic events or similar shock markets
- Meet local demands by increasing interactivity and information sharing between consumers and producers
