Title of deliverable:
FFN-ii: Project Demonstrations
FrutFlyNet-ii project deployed, optimized, operated, and demonstrated the two Location Aware (LA) prototypes, namely the OliveFlyNet for Olive fruit fly and the MedFlyNet for Mediterranean fruit fly, in the 8 wide-area sites (Olive: AUA, UCO, UNIMOL, LARI, IO, Peaches: UNIMOL, CRRHAB, Citrus: AUA. One of the most important task of the project was to perform a number of demonstration events (on average two demos per site). These were as follows: 3 demos were realized by AUA (Greece), 2 by UCO, (Spain), 2 by UNIMOL (Italy), 5 by LARI (Lebanon), 2 by IO (Tunisia) and 1 by CRRHAB (Tunisia). Noteworthy, that some of the demos of the partners AUA, LARI and IO were closely related with the Living Labs activities on e-trap innovations (LL1) and on e-services advances (LL2). Skill development evaluations via training during each demonstration were provided. Presentations, issues faced, suggestions collected from the stakeholders’ feedback, questionnaires, instruction guides, participants' lists, were also performed. Questionnaires' results about the suitability of LAS and its products obtained from the farmers/producers who were participated in the activities and used the system provided a fine Source of Verification (SoV) for the project outputs acceptability. Questioners, distributed at the end of the lifespan of the project reported positive, negative, neutral opinions, criticism, and possible adaptations. However, their feedback is generally more than encouraging.
