Fostering Agriculture Rural Development and Land Management-FARM is the new Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships project on which Inter-Edu and Technical University from Spain as former partners of the AgriBase consortium will work together in a partnership of a new maintenance AgriBase project FARM. The project is funded by the German National Agency and will be coordinated by the Harz University of Applied Sciences in Germany, and implemented by the partnership of Inter-Edu from North Macedonia, Technical University of Cartagena from Spain, University of Cyprus from Cyprus and Vytautas Magnus University from Lithuania.
The primary challenge of FARM project is to boost knowledge and technology transfer in the agricultural sector. FARM is focused on innovative approaches to knowledge exchange that will be taking advantage of new digital technologies, and will be based on synergies between information management and communication for development. Its objective is to contribute to Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD) by bringing relevant expertise and resources across the international community into a more coherent and systematic approach. In order to contribute to the improvement in ARD, FARM project defines four intellectual outputs for introduction, popularization and application of the current ICT DSS tools in ARD, but also designing and developing the prototypes of two new tools as well as training course materials in ARD based on the DSS recognized and with a focus on green skills. The two DSS prototypes will be available on AgriBase e-platform.
The scope of the project is on a systematic overview of existing ICT DSS tools in ARD that support crop farming, precision livestock farming, climate and quality control and farm management.
