Synelixis to coordinate the NESTLER EU-Africa project

On 11-12 October 2022, Synelixis hosted the kick-off meeting of NESTLER, a 4.4M€ EU-Africa project designed to promote the One-Health strategic partnership.

NESTLER (oNe hEalth SusTainabiLity partnership between EU-AFRICA for food sEcuRity) is a joint Horizon Europe project between the EU and African member states designed to promote One-Health sustainable partnership. The project aims to bring together interdisciplinary technological advances to effectively monitor the well-being of animals, plants, and humans in a holistic approach. The complementarity between the stakeholders will extend upon the ongoing initiatives from FARM2FORK strategies that have resulted in integrated software systems and solutions.

Synelixis is both the Project Coordinator and the Technical Coordinator of the consortium. Via the NESTLER project, Synelixis will build new tools for crop irrigation automation, crop and  livestock/fisheries disease prediction/monitoring AI models and push the EU-Africa One Health strategic partnership’s sustainable policies. In parallel, SynField nodes will be installed in 6 African countries (Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda, Rwanda Cameroon and Nigeria) extended the SynField network to 3 continents (Europe, Asia and Africa).
