New publication: Providing Innovative Solutions to Improve the Efficiency of the Agriculture Sector

Agriculture, including food-related industries and services, is one of the main economic sectors in the EU which provides over 44 million jobs (EC, 2019). The diverse climate, fertile soil, quality standards and technical expertise of the European farmers have made the EU a leading actor in this sector globally.

However, agriculture is currently facing deep economic, technological and regulatory changes where the impacts of climate change and resulting natural disasters exacerbate the challenges. That’s why the EU has been investing in diverse projects and initiatives to foster innovation and improve the efficiency of this sector.

With the support of the Common Dissemination Booster team, a new publication titled: 'Providing Innovative Solutions to Improve the Efficiency of the Agriculture Sector' presents a cluster of 4 innovative EU-funded projects VISCA, WEAM4i, OpIRIS & IRRIMAN. It briefly presents the issues and challenges as well as the results and solutions brought by these projects. You may click here to download the 2-pager.
