Projects Information

Below you can find more information about the three EU-funded projects that are jointly organizing this conference.


Within the knowledge-based bio-economy, information sharing is an important issue. In agri-food business, this is a complex issue because many aspects and dimensions play a role. An installed base of information systems lacks standardization, which hampers efficient exchange of information. This leads to inefficient business processes and hampers adoption of new knowledge and technology. Especially, the exchange of information at whole chain or network level is poorly organized. Although arable and livestock farming have their own specific needs, there are many similarities in the need for an integrated approach. Spatial data increasingly play an important role in agriculture.

The overall objective of this project is to coordinate and support the setting up of sustainable network for developing a system for common data exchange in agriculture.


The ICT-AGRI project is funded by the European Commission's ERA-NET scheme under the 7th Framework Programme for Research. The objective of an ERA-NET scheme is to develop and strengthen the European Research Area by facilitating practical initiatives to coordinate regional, national and European research programmes in specific fields.

One of the objectives of ICT AGRI ERA-NET, among others, is to encourage and stimulate trans-national and interdisciplinary research and innovation activities concerning ICT and robotics in agriculture, in particular by Private Public Partnership Actions.


The SmartAgriFood project is funded in the scope of the Future Internet Public Private Partnership Programme (FI-PPP), as part of the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission. The key objective is to elaborate requirements that shall be fulfilled by a “Future Internet” to drastically improve the production and delivery of safe and healthy food.
