An European cooperation project
Agreen’ Smart focuses on cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices at the European level. This project is the joint effort of 7 European Universities of Life Sciences: Junia ISA France, UTAD Portugal, NMBU Norway, SLU Sweden, University of Helsinki Finland, University of Liège Gembloux Agro-BioTech Belgium, and Perrotis College Greece.
The partners involved in AGreen’Smart offer a synergistic cooperation through different and complementary topics useful for this project:crop and animal sciences, precision agriculture and precision livestock farming, robotics, big data and artificial intelligence, mitigation and adaptation to climate change, sustainable agriculture and agroecology.
The geographical diversity of the partners (Portugal and Greece for the Southern region, Sweden, Finland and Norway for the Northern region, France and Belgium from the Central Western region) is covering different impact degrees of climate change, where each farmer has different adaptation of their practices and where public authorities, related to agriculture sector have adapted their strategies, from the general policy developed by EU through the CAP.
The inclusion of crop and animal sectors, and their association, are also very important as they are both contributing to climate change and will interest a wider public Last but not least, each partner is strongly involved at regional, national or international levels in professional organizations and networks of companies, farmers and other end users in the sector .
The project is therefore also the opportunity for the team to bring together these professional partners for their own benefit, as well as to assure the proper promotion and transfer of these new technologies to the end users
