NEUROPUBLIC participated in the 23rd MARS Conference, which took place between 28 and 29 November 2017 in Gormanston, Ireland.

The Conference was organized by the Joint Research Center (JRC), in collaboration with the Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI) and the Irish Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM).

The Conference aimed at presenting and discussing the experiences of Member States regarding the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS), as well as the related advances in the simplification and modernization of the new CAP.

NEUROPUBLIC participated in the Conference with a presentation titled “Effective agricultural monitoring for the new CAP” and a booth in which the technological tools and the functionalities of gaiasense, a smart farming system recently announced by NEUROPUBLIC, were exhibited.

During the first part of the presentation, Kostas Karalas (MSc), smart farming data scientist in NEUROPUBLIC, analyzed the technological framework of gaiasense as well as its capabilities. At the same time, he demonstrated to the audience the way in which gaiasense supports in an innovative way the development of smart farming services in Greece.

Following up, Panagiotis Ilias (Ph.D.), R&D director in NEUROPUBLIC, presented the way in which technology through Smart Farming can effectively support the targets of CAP and how the agricultural sector, CAP as well as governing systems like IACS can interoperate in the context of digital economy with other platforms, like gaiasense, creating in this way added value and the conditions that facilitate the development of scale and scope in the agrifood sector.

During the two days of the Conference, participants and organizers (JRC) had the opportunity to visit NEUROPUBLIC’s booth to be informed about the gaiasense system and see the operation of the system in real time and with real data.

NEUROPUBLIC participated in the Conference with a presentation for the second year in a row, a fact that indicates its role as one of the key technology providers in topics related to the implementation of the Common Agricultural Policy in the EU.
