I would like to check if Edgeryders would like to partner to solve some supply chain challenges in the food sector.
The challenge is that there are different ‘tech’ systems that don’t necessarily ‘talk’ to each other as they use their own vocabularies. This causes that food is actually locked in physical places where it is not needed letting other places in EU without food.
I am part of a consortium working on the ‘Data Integration Challenge’ of these systems. Some partners are OGC (https://www.ogc.org/), ILVO (https://www.ilvo.vlaanderen.be/), F2FMarket (https://www.f2fmarket.tech/), EDDA (https://europeandigital.org/).
Since NGI initiatives have done quite some research in the area of mapping semantic systems, and other related topics, it is recommended to have a NGI partner to support initiatives that are already running.
We would like to apply for several grants, having the NGI Atlantic as a first target for some experimentation, and going for bigger grants as the idea is big.
I would like to have a call with someone in the NGI project to talk about this opportunity for partnership. We will be focusing on covid vocabulary around food.
Concretely I need:
- Check if Edgeryders wants to partner on this.
- If yes, get general description on the methods already used to integrate them in the proposal.
- Give access to our working document.
- Agree on budget for the experimentation on NGI Atlantic. Total is 150k for 6 months. Doable with 30k?
- Look for bigger grants.
I have ping @nadia on a private message too.
Looking forward to your answers!
