ERA-Net ICT-AGRI Call 2015: Enabling Precision Farming
Public and private institutions and companies are invited to submit pre-proposal applications for participating in transnational projects, which will contribute to enabling Precision farming in practice. National funding agencies from 13 European countries are offering € 5,660,000 in total to applicants. Applicants from other countries are warmly welcome to participate with own funding.
The aim of the call is to fund transnational projects, which will contribute to enabling Precision Farming. Precision Farming is a key element in sustainable intensification, i.e. increasing food production with smaller environmental footprints. Although Precision Farming has been studied and developed for more than two decades, adoption of the technology in primary agriculture is still behind expectations. There are, therefore, needs for research, development and innovation concerning the adoption of Precision Farming in primary agriculture.
