We participate to BCFN YES! competition since we have the technical skills to help apiculture in resolving the bee problems: together with you, we succeed!

Human life – and the world as a whole – would be much different if bees did not exist. Bees are responsible for the pollination of 400 different agricultural types of crops. Moreover, honeybees contribute to produce approximately a third of what we usually eat. In the last year more than 53% of bees have died in Europe and about 90% in US. We are proposing a research project directly focused on helping of bees: studying bee lives and the causes of their disappearance, we will be able to predict their death due to pathogens/chemicals. 3Bee project's aim is to design an innovative electronic monitoring system for beehive that shares information among everyone wants to help bees: researchers, beekeepers and consumers as well. This system analyses parameters like air quality and sound spectrum. It is completely self-sustainable (solar energy and bee vibrations) allowing people to help bees just buying the bee products from the monitored beehives, contributing to install of new systems.
