Collaborative Workshop of ERA-Net ICT-AGRI & MANUFUTURE Sub-ETP
The ERA-Net ICT-AGRI and the European Technology Platform ‘MANUFUTURE Sub-ETP Agricultural Engineering & Technologies AET’ will organise a collaborative workshop in Hanover on 10 November 2017. The workshop is a subevent of the Land.TECHNIK AgEng International Conference on Agricultural Engineering. The aim of the workshop is to motivate participants to think about visionary priorities in European research, to incorporate ideas, and to discuss them with representatives of the European Commission.
Background of the workshop
In 2006 the community of agricultural engineering in Europe formulated a common vision about agriculture and the driving engineering technologies. The European Technology Platform Manufuture AET was established as initiative of private companies and academics in Europe. This led to a number of research areas, which were presented to the European Commission as a basis for calls for tenders, and for research calls in FP7 and Horizon 2020. Initiatives such as the ERA-Net ICT-AGRI were developed, which pushed forward the idea of European cooperation in specific research areas, which also concerned agricultural engineering and technologies. This workshop is intended to relaunch the discussion on research topics.
There is no participation fee. Registration is required.
