On behalf of the EU-FP7 projects agriXchange (www.agriXchange.eu) and SmartAgriFood (www.smartagrifood.eu), we invited Rod Conner, CEO of AgGateway in the USA to share his experience and thoughts on information exchange and use of ICT in the agri-food business.
The EU-funded projects FutureFarm, agriXchange and CAPIGI-network which joined together in GeoFARMatics 2010 in Cologne, Germany, from 24th-26th November 2010, recognised that agri-food and rural ICT must be an essential part of the European Digital Agenda for 2020. The process of building the Rural Knowledge Society started by the Valencia declaration helps to reduce the digital divide between rural and urban communities in Europe.
From the Strategic Research Agenda White Paper, now the Cologne Declaration has been derived. This document will be discussed during the GeoFARMatics conference in Cologne. If you can't make it to the conference, you may also drop comments on the document below.
This document is intended as discussion material for future vision of strategic research priorities in the area of ICT and standardization for AgriFood sector. This document is based on previous work done mainly inside of EFITA conferences and studies related to ICT adoption, on the Strategic Research Agenda of Ami@NetFood program, results of c@r IPproject and results of FutureFarm Knowledge Management Visions.
