The 199 technologies will be translated in the thirteen different languages that are the languages of the partners of the project.
The project partners discussed in detail the remaining activities such as the knowledge exchange activities that will be mainly carried out through the workshops, seminars, training sessions and open days. In addition, in the next months, different communication and dissemination activities are planned to give even more visibility to the results achieved so far in the project but also to disseminate information and material concerning IPM, which will be available on the website of the project.
The aim of the project is to stimulate knowledge flow in the regional AKISs (Agriculture Knowledge and Innovation Systems) across the EU and connect these on the innovative potential of advanced methodologies for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in vegetable production, integrating precision farming technologies and data analytics. SmartProtect is an EU funded project in the frame of the Horizon 2020 programme.
