SPADE meets ICAEURUS in Mallorca

Under the framework of Horizon 2020 project, PLOTUS, SPADE had the opportunity to perform a cooperation meeting with ICAEURUS, a sister project of SPADE, during their visit to Any Solution facilities and Agricultural Cooperative of Sóller. The meeting took place last 19th May, in Mallorca, Spain.

The main topic behind this visit was the growing digitalization of the Agri-food sector and many relevant stakeholders were present at this event to disclose their knowledge, such as Maria Parets from Agricultural Cooperative of Sóller, Dolores Ordonez and Pierrick Le Guillou from AnySolution and Katerina Kasimati from ICAREUS. During this visit, SPADE had the privilege of introducing the project and its goals. A particular standout was the exploration of use cases related to crop monitoring and crop spraying specifically tailored for terraced crops, allowing to share insights, and assessing the progress made in both Horizon Europe projects. It was truly a remarkable opportunity to exchange perspectives and foster collaboration.

We would like to thank Agriculture Cooperative of Sóller for hosting this meeting.


SPADE at OpenContinuum’s “Concertation and Consultation on Computing Continuum: From Cloud to Edge to IoT”

OpenContinuum, with the support of Unlock-CEI and SWForum, organized a dynamic event titled “The Concertation and Consultation on Computing Continuum: From Cloud to Edge to IoT” that occurred between May 10th and May 11th at The Claridge in Brussels, Belgium (

The first day of the event was concertation oriented, whereby the invited Horizon Europe RIAs which started in 2023 had the opportunity to pitch their projects and introduce the plans for the future. During the second day, the event shifted to a consultation with the goal of bringing forward thinking for the next Horizon Europe Work Programme (2025-2027).

It was during the latter that SPADE partners from ECLIPSE and TRIALOG played an active part in the event. This occurred under the framework of a 3 minutes pitch session where there was the opportunity to disclose information regarding the potential of drones as multi-purpose vehicles, in addition to their risks and added values.
