Value Chain Digitalisation for Resource Efficiency


4 years

2021 - 2025





Bio-Based Digital Twins (BBTWINS) aims to develop a digital platform for the optimisation of agri-food value chain processes and the supply of quality biomass for bioprocessing.

The platform will be based on ‘digital twins’ technology – creating a real-time digital replica of physical processes in the agri-food industry.

BBTWINS will also combine Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning, the Internet of Things (IoT) and software analytics in this single platform.

With 13 partners in 7 countries, the BBTWINS consortium will be focusing on meat and fruit production, integrating the value chain (from crop to final product) and will define the optimal pathway for each feedstock to maximise efficiency and minimise losses – without impacting quality.

The BBTWINS project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement No 101023334.
