ICT TECHNOLOGIES FOR SUSTAINABLE FOOD SYSTEMS
Protecting the health of humans, animals and plants at every stage of the food production process is a key public health and economic priority for the EU. Smart digital technology can help safeguard health along the whole agro-food chain.
Our aim is, to foster, verifiably and perceptibly, the use of smart digital technology to make European food systems more sustainable, resilient and secure by the insertion of digital technology into the agri-food sector.
The management structure and the corresponding management procedures ensure an efficient steering of the project on a day-to-day basis which is essential for the overall success of the ERA-Net Cofund.
The overall goal was to strengthen the European research within the diverse area of precision farming and develop a common European research agenda concerning ICT and robotics in agriculture, and to follow up with calls based on funds from the participating countries’ national research programmes.
