  • Funder: European Commission Project Code: 2021-1-EL01-KA210-VET-000032913
    Funder Contribution: 60,000 EUR

    << Objectives >>This project aims to involve VET trainees and trainers in STEM training using innovative Digital Agriculture technologies. Learners will participate in interdisciplinary activities from the real job market that encourage young people to be creative with technology and acquire digital skills in demand. Modern Digital Agriculture is chosen as a practice that incorporates STEM disciplines that can enhance the attractiveness of the VET Institute and can lead to the job market.<< Implementation >>1)Managing the STEM4Agri Project 2)Adapting the necessary conventional and mainly cutting-edge agricultural technologies paradigm from the AUA university curriculum to the VET curriculum 3)Training VET trainers 4)Training VET trainees in the context of focusing on STEM actions and artifacts that are directly related to environmental and agricultural processes 5)Verifying the skills acquired by all the trainees 6)Dissemination of beneficial results.<< Results >>Participating trainees will be benefited from various STEM themes combining creativity, innovation, and constructiveness that can lead to a promising career. As they work on their interdisciplinary projects, they will have the opportunity to develop digital skills, explore scientific concepts, be familiar with the digitization of food & beverages sector and apply Digital and Sustainable agricultural practices. The project also provides trainers with professional development skills on STEM field.

    Funder Contribution: 60,000 EUR

    << Objectives >>The objectives of this project are to reduce the unknown about the application of automatic technologies in the livestock farms and increase the green skills and solutions for the reduction of environmental impact and save the ecosystems with a positive effect on the environment. In addition, the introduction of automatic technologies and digitalization of livestock farms we can increase the use of digital tools and elearning methods and introduce new key figures in farms by young learners.<< Implementation >>We are creating a new VET course focused on the emerging new digital and automatic technologies needs by the livestock market, interaction between VET education and farmers for the introduction of new facilitation for the work and animal welfare, a web-platform focused to digital and green skills increasingly the transformation of the new job carries on digital an automatic technologies tailored to the labor market for a quick new occupations that are emerging, sharing project results.<< Results >>With this initiative we will cement the cooperation and networking of participating organisations, sharing project results with stakeholders and entrepreneurs involved in the livestock farming, contributing the development of a VET course that increase performances of farm management and work activities for the benefit of farm families for a better quality of life, increase the animal welfare, generating new occupation for the introduction and maintenance of new tools and analysis of the data.

    Precision Agriculture (PA) or site-specific crop management can be defined as the management of spatial and temporal variability at a sub-field level to improve economic returns and reduce environmental impact. It incorporates a range of management as well as ICT tools. The concept has been made possible by the rapid development of ICT-based sensor technologies and procedures along with dedicated software(Blackmore et al., 2003 Despite of the existing knowledge at research level and market availability of efficient and affordable tools implementing PA in SMF, its implementation is insufficient, mainly for the following reasons, according to EIP-AGRI Focus Group Precision Farming (2015); • Perceived complexity and insufficient knowledge of farmers and Agriculture Advisers • Lack of clear determination of the specific cost/benefits for the individual farm, based on the evaluation of the application of appropriated tools to specific farm´s situation and overestimation of investment risk due to that • Lack of realistic information on the costs, benefits and technical challenges in real farm situations • Lack of appropriate training for Agriculture Advisers • Disconnection between knowledge at Research level and applicability to SMF As a conclusion, according to EIP-AGRI Focus Group Precision Farming (2015), training and awareness is needed for Agriculture Advisers working in Small and Medium Farms. AGRICT is launched with the main objective of increasing the competences (attitudes, skills, knowledge) of Agriculture Advisers working in Small and Medium Farms about how to use ICT Tools for the proper implementation of Precision Agriculture (PA) , through an innovative training program The project has the next specific objectives: • Aware and transfer knowledge related with the Precision Agriculture • Showing specific and affordable ICT solutions for the application of Precision Agriculture to real farm situations • Promoting the customized diagnosis of needs in terms of ICT solutions and evaluation of requirements and cost/benefit relation Through the execution of this Project the next results will be obtained; • Co-Created Methodological Guide will be developed, with the direct participation of End Users, with the main objective of determining the key contents, methodologies and tools needed for creating and improving the critical competences of Agriculture Advisers working in Small and Medium Farms (SMF) regarding the use of ICT Tools for the proper implementation of Precision Agriculture (PA). • 5 Sets of Training Packages, including Training Materials and Experiential Training Activities, addressed to Agriculture Advisers working in SMF in the next fields; 1. Introduction to precision agriculture; 2. Sensors and electronic systems; 3. GNSS and geo-referencing; 4. ICT devices; 5. Agricultural machinery automation • Development of an e-Training Platform, for supporting the implementation of the Training Methodology, including Training Packages, Workspace and link to applicable ICT Tools. • Creation of 5 AGRICT UNITS within the structure of each partner in order to ensure the sustainable exploitation of the project after the project lifetime. • Development of Dissemination Actions addressed to the European Agriculture Sector, involving professionals, students, suppliers, universities, public bodies, etc… AgrICT will benefit a number of persons during the project lifetime: • 80 Agriculture Advisers working in Small and Medium Farms will be trained (20 on each participant country) through their participation in the validation actions of Training Packages and e-Training Platform. • 2.000 persons (500 on each country), including Agriculture Advisers working in Small and Medium Farms, but also other stakeholders in the field of Precision Agriculture, like Advisers, Researchers, Suppliers, etc... will be aware, through multiplier events and dissemination actions to be carried on through the project website, newsletters, leaflets, etc…
