Coordination of ICT and Robotics in Agriculture and Related Environmental Issues

Public Private Partnerships

New partnerships and common solutions

ICT AGRI Era-net launched in 2011 a PPP Action with the goal to support and develop the set-up of partnerships between public and private stakeholders (public research centers, private companies, end users association, etc.) in the area of ICT and Robotics for the agriculture and environment.

A first specific main challenge involving all European countries was chosen: the reduction of the use of pesticides, in close relationship with the 2018 European objective(European Directive 2009/128/EC).

Three concrete innovative products were proposed as a basis to gather all potential partners to discuss together various options and help them to define their projects and partnerships, in a bottom-up approach.

NEXT MEETING: 29th of October in Brussels.
LAST NEWS: The day of the meeting may be modified - More information will be available soon
