The AGreenSmart project ended on August 31st 2023 after 3 years of great and fruitful collaboration between even (7) universities:

  • Helsingin Yliopisto – Finland,
  • Junia Lille – France,
  • Norges Miljø-og Biovitenskapelige Universitet – Norway,
  • Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet – Sweden,
  • Perrotis College American Farm School – Greece,
  • ULiège Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech – Belgium,
  • Universidade de Tras-os-Montes e Alto Douro – Portugal)

This consortium developed contents for three (3) cohorts of ninety-five (95) students in total related to the five (5) following topics:

  • precision agriculture,
  • animal husbandry,
  • robotics, big data and artificial intelligence,
  • mitigation and adaptation to climate change
  • sustainable agriculture and agroecology

As reminder it had 2 main objectives:
(i) to develop a new curriculum treating current challenges of crop production and animal husbandry such as climate change, environment, landscape and biodiversity preservation,
(ii) and to train the next generation of farmers, technicians, entrepreneurs, researchers about the roles of technologies to improve the sustainability and the adaptability of agricultural practices to cope with above-mentioned challenges.

Each year, the cursus was composed of three (3) activities giving in total 5 ECTS to the students:

  • a preparatory project (25-hours) aiming at exploring the specific contexts of agricultural practices, use of technologies for crops and livestock farming and the impact of the use of those technologies on the sustainability of the farms using them within a case-study;
  • an introductive e-learning (40-hours), hosted by the moodle platform of UTAD (, requiring a specific access given by UTAD) aiming at giving refresher courses to all participants knowing that they are coming from different academic backgrounds;
  • and an intensive program (70-hours) composed by courses, guided-works, visits, projects and group works covering the five (5) topics of AGreenSmart. It was hosted by 2 campuses (Helsinki-Finland in 2022 and Lille-France in 2023) and was done online in 2021 (replays are available on the page “intensive programs” of the website).
