EIP-AGRI seminar: Multi-level strategies for digitising agriculture and rural areas


Our partner FINT will attend the EIP-AGRI seminar “Multi-level strategies for digitising agriculture and rural areas” on the 12-13/12, in Antwerp, Belgium.This seminar will provide a platform for a stimulating debate on the importance of strategic planning to steer the digitisation of agriculture and rural areas, combining European, national, regional and local levels.

Internet of Things technologies enable physical objects’ connection on the Internet, remote management of them and ultimately machine-learning decision making without human’s intervention transforming digitally any business. FINT’s role as a Telecom Engineering service provider is to build the hardware telecom devices and software modules that enable objects’ transition online. The heavy use of standards in physical, communication, network and application (OSI) layers ensure that these interventions can be object-agnostic, scalable, interoperable with other similar systems and thus expandable to cross-domain business verticals (smart cities/ agriculture/ water).

That said, research, rural networks stakeholders and policy makers are currently in agreement on the need for digital strategies to unlock the potential of digitisation in order to face current and future challenges of the farming sector and of rural areas. The EC legislative proposals on the Common Agricultural Policy post-2020 provide for the inclusion in the

CAP Strategic Plans 'a description of the strategy for the development of digital technologies in agriculture and rural areas and for the use of these technologies to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the CAP Strategic Plan interventions'.
