BeeFutures - making beekeeping sustainable again


Description:

The overall vision of the BeeFutures EIC Accelerator Pilot project is to prototype, pilot and commercialise our complete solution for beekeeping, which will be tailor-made for the specific needs of the apiculture market. The BeeFutures Hive is a hospital and a shelter for the bees as well as a data capture centre. Our revolutionary high-tech Hive contains remote controlled mechanisms, sensors, cameras, micro-climate controls a protective entrance and trap against hornets and a breakthrough biotech to heal bees mitochondria powered luminescence to reserve the undermining effects of pesticides and stress factors. The Hive protects and heals bees with an 80% mortality reduction while boosting honey production with 30%. As part of our solution we have developed a data and machine learning cloud platform. Fuelled by the data captured in BeeFutures Hives, the data platform will assess bee health at scale and pollination coverage. The aim of the envisaged project is to move our current prototype technology to full commercialisation onto the global market. The BeeFutures technology has a major market potential compared to current state-of-the-art technologies. To increase our commercial success and impact, we have created a Strategic Business Plan, as a detailed roadmap, describing all necessary activities we need to undertake to ensure a successful market introduction. Now, we seek to develop our Commercialisation Plan (CP), which will form an important part of the final Business Innovation Plan (BIP), to be created in this Accelerator Pilot project. As the envisaged Accelerator Pilot project builds upon a validated Hive prototype technology, the majority of our efforts will be focused on piloting and commercialisation activities.
