High-level policy-makers at European, national and regional level, as well as renowned academics will participate in panel discussions on the status-quo and the future of precision farming in Europe. We foresee time for questions from the audience, so this will be your chance to engage in a lively debate!
2. Take part in shaping the IoF2020 Open Call.
In the second half of 2018, IoF2020 will launch a €5 million Open Call for new partners to join our consortium. In order to help us shape the future of IoF2020, event participants are invited to a workshop to provide their input on the scope and structure of the Open Call along three themes: new areas, new technologies and new regions.
3. Engage with key stakeholders from the agri-food value chain
More than 300 stakeholders from along the agri-food value chain, including farmers, technology providers policy-makers and researchers will join the event. This represents an excellent opportunity to network and share your ideas on the agri-tech revolution. In this context, a workshop featuring a House of Commons style debate will focus on the role of public-private partnerships in enhancing the uptake of IoT technologies in the European food and farming sectors.
4. Get to know use-cases first hand and see how IoT technologies perform in the field.
On the second day, participants will have the opportunity to visit vegetable use-cases powered by IoF2020 and other EU funded projects. The visit will take place in the vicinity of Almeria, and showcase ICT-solutions in greenhouses.
IoF2020 fosters the large-scale take-up of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in the European food and farming sectors. Thereby, it addresses challenges related to improving the agri-food sector’s environmental sustainability, while maintaining high quality standards, responding to international competition and enhancing transparency. IoF2020 focuses on 19 use-cases across 5 thematic trials (arable crop, dairy, meat, vegetables and fruits), covering both integrated and organic farming.
