The Challenge

To feed a growing world population with the given amount of available farmland, there is a need to develop new methods of sustainable farming that increase production yield within agri-food production systems while minimizing environmental impact and improving the safety of workers treating crops. Smart agriculture seeks to address these challenges by upskilling farmers, machinery operators and other agricultural workforce with digital competency, contributing to a more precise, efficient, sustainable and competitive EU farming sector.

Project objectives

IMPLEMENT 4.0 intends to address these challenges by developing awareness and competences of farmers towards an advanced digital knowledge focused on smart and resilient farming.

IMPLEMENT 4.0 will raise the skills capacity and in-house functional knowledge and best practices in order to improve the overall competitiveness of the agriculture industry and succeed in an increasingly digital, green and knowledge driven economy.

Expected Results

The IMPLEMENT 4.0 training course is designed to improve knowledge of digital solutions among agricultural professionals, and therefore create an highly skilled force; to increase productivity as well as minimize environmental impact; and eventually improve the overall sustainability and competitiveness of the European agricultural sector.


The project consortium consists of 7 partners from three European countries(Turkey, Italy, and Spain), coordinated by OMU from Turkey.

IMPLEMENT4.0 brings together a multidisciplinary team with a wide range of technical experience and know-how in agriculture, smart farming and e-learning, to efficiently implement the work in addressing the skills needs of the agriculture workforce, as well as to ensure the long-term sustainability of the project outcomes.

Contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals

Digital agriculture has the potential to make agriculture more productive, more responsible and offer opportunity for economic growth, hunger and poverty alleviation.

IMPLEMENT 4.0 is expected to contribute to 8 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Quality Education, Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure, Responsible Consumption & Production, Climate Action, Life on Land and Partnership for the Goals.
