Description

We would like to invite you to our next Digital in Practice Programme on:

Data-enabled farming with a human touch

20 June 2018, 08:30 – 10:00, Brussels

Agriculture has been at the forefront of the data-driven revolution, helping EU farming to become more efficient, productive and sustainable. Like in other dimensions of the digital transformation, the European Commission has been instrumental to making leading-edge technologies accessible to this sector: agriculture and food value chains are an integral part of the Digital Single Market strategy; issues related to agricultural data sharing and reuse are at the heart of EU policies on data. At the same time, the future Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) post 2020 has set Smart Farming as a catalyst to achieve its objectives, whereas the EU’s Research & Innovation policy has been supporting the digitization of the agricultural sector through ambitious financing of a large number of Horizon 2020 projects.

But where do farmers stand amidst all the hype? At the center, actually, whether for data collection or its optimal use, and in close cooperation with a full array of stakeholders involved throughout this complex decision making process.

To build on previous workshops dedicated to other aspects of ICT-enabled farming, we have asked these distinguished experts to share their views on the human factor in data-powered farming:

Speakers:

- Alina-Stefania Ujupan, Member of the Cabinet of Commissioner Mariya Gabriel, European Commission
- Elli Tsiforou, Head of the Brussels Office, Gaia Epicheirein
- Dr George Beers, Programme Manager, Wageningen University

Moderator:

- Cecilia Bonefeld-Dahl, Director General of DIGITALEUROPE


We hope that you will be able to contribute your thoughts and experience to this informal conversation that will be held in full compliance with the Chatham House rule.

Registration: The number of seats is limited. Please register online before 18 June.

Background

The Digital in Practice Programme aims to make a case for the digital industry and to evidence the transformative impact of digital products and services. By fostering short, crisp and open debates between leading experts and interested guests, our workshops afford the industry, policy makers and other key stakeholders a powerful educational platform where to share information and discuss informally how a truly ICT-enabled Europe will look like.

We hope that you will be able to join!
