Giving Beekeeping Guidance by cOmputatiOnal-assisted Decision making

B-GOOD will pave the way towards healthy and sustainable beekeeping within the European Union by following a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach. Merging data from within and around beehives as well as wider socioeconomic conditions, B-GOOD will develop and test innovative tools to perform risk assessments according to the Health Status Index (HSI).

B-GOOD has the overall goal to provide guidance for beekeepers and help them make better and more informed decisions.

B-GOOD's platform will utilise and further expand the open source BEEP system comprised of a monitoring device and the already functional user-friendly application for digital beekeeping logbooks.

Six B-GOOD developed technologies will feed real-time data into the platform

honeybee vibrations-based accelerometers to produce long term statistics;
gas and
spatially resolved temperature
automated bee counters
(hive mortality rates, pollen flow,
drone/worker discrimination);
sensors to
detect pesticide
devices to
detect honey bee viruses of high health
analytical tool
for genetic
