If the central European farming sector wants to keep up with latest trends, it needs more cooperation and anticipation of industrial market changes. The precision farming sector is an integral part of Industry 4.0. However, it is also in desperate need of more networks to overcome its traditional “local-based” knowledge approach that actually limits its competitiveness.

The Transfarm4.0 project will change this traditional approach to technology transfer in agriculture into a wider transnational open innovation environment. It aims to enable companies, clusters, R&D performers and farmers to improve regional industrial specialisations. The project focuses on three joint industrial domains: a new ISOBUS application, remote and proximal sensing, and big and smart data management. Pools of engineers and R&D performers will test innovative tech-try-outs in model farms making them more competitive and fit for the future trends.

More information will follow soon.
