GROW Observatory – 2016-2019

The GROW Observatory, belonging to the “Citizen Science” initiative of the EU, addressed thousands of growers, scientists and people obsessed with soil and earth throughout Europe. The objective was to create together a pan-European farmers’ community, discover the secrets of the soil, use simple tools to manage it more efficiently and contribute to its protection and scientific follow-up.


  • Creating a central repository of open knowledge and data generated and maintained by growers who will be in continuous interaction with civil society and communities specialising in science, politics and industry.
  • Creation of “GROW champions” in many countries in Europe for the dissemination and support of young farmers with new technologies.


Funding programme: € 249.945 HORIZON 2020 Programme of the European Union
