“Ultimately, Smart Farming Technologies are another tool, not an end in themselves, supporting farmers in the agricultural process, based upon the agronomist science principles and knowledge.”
Follwing the presentation of a selection of Recommendations in the Smart-AKIS Conference held on June 27 in Brussels, Smart-AKIS is happy to share now the full report with the Recommendations drawn by the Network after 2 and a half years of work.
Recommendations are extracted from the whole of activities and processes carried out during the project, into 3 domains:
1) Enhancing innovation-driven agricultural research within the EIP-AGRI ecosystem;
2) Future Research in Smart Farming; and
