SPARKLE is focused on Mediterranean countries and is the result of cooperation between universities and farms in four different fields from Italy, Spain, Greece and Portugal, which have already adopted precision agriculture (PA) technologies.
Why this partnership?
- Geographical distribution: the choice was made in order to focus on a specific geographical area in the field of arable crops, fruit, viticulture and olive culture.
- Multidisciplinarity and involvement in previous projects: the main idea was to keep together Universitiesand farms already adopting PA technologies, for the creation of high valuable outputs, cross-checking them with companies providing advanced PA services
- Coherence with the project objectives: the partners present skills, expertise and competencies in PA technologies, business innovation management and creation of e-learning materials that guarantee a successful development of the innovative educational results envisaged by the project.
