The digitalisation of the world of agriculture and agri-food is creating myriad opportunities for economic development.
What are the value propositions of the new technologies offered by the Internet of Things, UAVs, satellite applications, robotics, big data and mobile applications in general?
What, in terms of living labs and other platforms, can be established to help make these technologies applicable to farm operators?
