On 2 and 3 May 2018 Agroknow participated at the EU AgriResearch Conference held in Belgium representing AGINFRA PLUS project. AgriResearch Conference was about EU agriculture and rural research and innovation activities now and in the future.

The conference was dedicated to scientists, farmers, rural communities, industry, advisors, policy-makers, citizens and NGO representatives who wish to learn about EU agriculture and rural R&I activities and achievements and to have their say on how to shape the future of agriculture R&I after 2020. The conference was also a great occasion to network with around 500 peers.

The conference objectives were:

  • to take stock of the implementation of the strategic approach to EU agricultural R&I and present its first achievements on knowledge produced, linkages established between EU policies or new avenues opened in terms of implementation approaches;
  • to kick-start the discussion on how to best support agricultural and rural research and innovation in the future EU policies, in particular the future EU framework programme for research and innovation and the future CAP by identifying key issues deserving particular attention under the different strategy priorities and exploring how to maximise impact and synergies between the various EU policies and instruments.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

OUR COMMUNITIES

The selected AGINFRA+ Use Cases will illustrate the benefits of applying the Science as a Service approach to pressing research questions from the corresponding research communities.

AGROCLIMATIC AND ECONOMIC MODELLING

This community focuses on use cases aim to support the workflow of researchers, intermediaries and business analysts working on crop modelling, crop phenology estimation and yield forecasting, as well as related activities in the area of policy and decision support in food security, farm management advice and related activities.

FOOD SAFETY RISK ASSEMENT

This community focuses on use cases to support scientists in the multidisciplinary field of risk assessment and emerging risk identification as there is currently a strong need to create new technology-supported solutions that facilitate the knowledge integration processes relevant for these tasks.

FOOD SECUTIRY

This community focuses on use cases related to the high-throughput phenotyping large amount of data which need to be analyzed immediately for decision making. This aims to support phenomics researchers to select plant species and varieties which are the most adapted to specific environments and to global changes.
