On April 26, 2018 in Matera, the IDEEO Project, meets the agricultural world of Basilicata (entrepreneurs, consultants, professionals), along with companies involved in the field of Earth observation and, more generally, ICT companies that develop applications for precision farming. The perspectives offered by this important technological sector will be discussed, to address the problems of agricultural production and the major challenges of the primary sector.
The working day is organized in two parts: during the morning, the activities of the IDEEO Project will be presented and the potentials and developments of the Remote Sensing technologies applied to agriculture will be discussed. Agricultural producers will be able to highlight needs and clarify the demand for services, while technology suppliers will be able to illustrate technological offer, presenting good practices applied in other contexts.
In the second part of the afternoon, a matchmaking event will be carried out, during which agricultural producers and technology suppliers will be able to discuss in B2B meetings for potential collaborations.
Representatives and members belonging to the following three IDEEO Project Cluster’s Partners, will attend the day:
- EARSC, the European Association of Remote Sensing Companies.
- PoleMer Bretagne Atlantique, involved in the development of maritime technologies.
- CLB, the Basilicata Cluster of Bioeconomy.
IDEEO aims at the creation of a new European partnership which will promote internationally the use of European Earth Observation capability in different sectors such as agriculture. Details on the program will be provided later.
