NEUROPUBLIC was invited by the organizers of the event to talk about the status of Smart Farming in Greece, as well as to present its smart farming project which is currently taking places in various locations all over Greece, in collaboration with GAIA EPICHEIREIN. NEUROPUBLIC’s contribution aimed at highlighting the specificities of the Greek agricultural sector that prevent typical smart farming approaches from being successfully applied in Greece as well as at encouraging participants to participate with related innovative ideas in the open call of the KATANA project.

Through a well-defined process which includes innovative tools such as peer to peer evaluation and Reward Crowd Funding, at the final step 10 innovative consortia will be selected and receive €100.000 each, in order to proceed with the implementation of their ideas.
