TRACK proposes a calendar of 11 ICT for Agrifood webinars to help companies harness the power of the 4.0 revolution to solve problems and maximise opportunities in the area of agrifood.
The first webinar in our series took place on 24 October and was dedicated to ICT companies wanting to better understand how to approach the agrifood market. Rocio de la Rosa of Corporacion Tecnologica Andalucia (CTA) delivered the course and gave the floor to businesses that whared their own experiences in the area. A second webinar followed soon after on 31 October , led by Agrifood Clust-ER Emilia-Romagna on “ICT for agrifood an ecosystem of technologies”. Clust-ER’s Prof. Massimo Carnevali presented an analysis of all the challenges of the 4.0 revolution for the agrifood sector and extracted suggestions as to how agrifood companies can turn these challenges into opportunities by better understanding key technologies such as Blockchain and Big Data.
A third event was held on 11 November by Rocio de la Rosa of CTA on explaining the concept of Cascade funding in ongoing EU projects that aim at supporting 4.0 tech take up in agrifood through open calls for proposals such as DIVA or INNOWIDE.
