The ERA- Net SusCrop is launching a video contest to actively involve EVERYBODY from across the world to reflect, communicate and inspire on ‘what sustainable crop production means to you?’

The Green New Deal and Farm to Fork strategy put precision agriculture and smart farming among the main instruments for a more sustainable practice. The EU Common Agriculture Policy provides several opportunities (eg. ‘eco-schemes’, Innovation through EIP AGRI Operational Groups, different kind of Investments, etc.). Besides the many potential benefits, precision agriculture and smart farming bring also the problem of data management, data interoperability and machine interoperability.
The ESA call for Feasibility Studies aims to promote the operational and commercial roll-out of services addressing interconnected systems for positive impact where at least two systems considered “isolated”, including eco-systems, are operated in a synergistic manner so that externalities are re-used or recycled and with the use of at least one space assets. The intended contractors are businesses operating in one of the field (e.g. solar panel installers, for the example above) or system integrators.
