Topic 7: Open Technology for innovative Agriculture

Specific Challenge

Technology trends like AI, 3D printing, or blockchain are emerging fast and the field of agriculture is finding it difficult to keep up. The goal of this call is to develop solutions for digital agriculture that make use of the most recent technology developments. The proposals submitted should provide new impetus for further research topics and involve a specific agricultural use case – ideally one defined by the consortium’s end users.


Proposals may cover (but are not limited to) one or a combination of the following topics, for example:

  • 3D printing for agriculture
  • User interfaces for tractor terminals in field applications
  • Hyperspectral data analysis
  • Robust in-field communication (e.g. LoRaWAN)
  • Modelling and simulation
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Blockchain technology

Any other ideas related to digital agriculture, system interoperability, and IoT technology will be highly appreciated.
