DIVINE Project in EU AgriResearch Conference 2023

Our project coordinator, Professor Ioanna Roussaki, represented Horizon Europe Divine Project at the 2023 EU AgriResearch Conference, which took place in Brussels on 31 May – 1 June. There, she had the chance to promote the work of DIVINE and initiate collaboration with other Horizon Europe projects, such as AgriDataSpaces.

The session on "Digital and Data technologies in agriculture: R&I for sectoral transformation" was of particular interest providing valuable insights into the main research and innovation needs and opportunities in the agriculture sector, as well as the respective barriers and challenges in place that need to be addressed. The implementation of a Common European Agricultural DataSpace is planned and DIVINE has already started preparing related outputs to support this initiative.
