Smart AKIS at AgroThessaly 2017
In the framework of AgroThesally 2017, a special session was organized by the Praxis network on March 9, with the title Funding opportunities and support services of Research & Innovation in Agricultural production where the Agricultural University of Athens (AUA) was invited to present Smart AKIS and its functions for the benefit of farmers. AUA was represented by Vangelis Anastasiou, PhD Candidate on Precision Viticulture, due to unavailability of Thanos Balafoutis that was originally assigned to present the Thematic Network (this is the reason for the appearance of his name in the agenda of the event). Different stakeholders, including mainly farmers and entrepreneurs, participated in the event and there were high interest on the activities of the project. After the completion of the presentations, networking activities were executed with other presenters and audience.
