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.


Objective: The session is aiming at exchanging info among Regions about:

  • existing precision agriculture/smart farming regional initiatives;
  • actual technologies/sectoral needs where precision farming practices are supported/deployed;
  • existing approaches or initiatives to solve the issue of data management and interoperability;
  • EU funding programmes of possible interest for the promotion of interregional projects.
