Discovery R&D Center is organizing a two week youth training program centered around activities related to ICT in agriculture. The attendee’s first task during the Regional Summer School will be to carry out an inventory of all the relevant research programs in Europe and to identify overlaps and gaps in existing research agendas in Western Balkans. They will also compare the research agendas of different programs and exploring existing and potential linkages among them and with agro-industry. The ultimate goal will be to create strategic research agenda for ICTs in agriculture. It will feature a list of future priorities, as agreed by all the partners within the Regional Summer School.
Partners will improve the quality of Western Balkan research and development activities on ICTs in agriculture. It may also help to level up Central and Southern East Europe position in the development of novel ICTs and applications. The program may encourage V4 and WB youth to become more competitive without compromising on quality as well as protecting the agro-environment.
