IMPLEMENT 4.0 TRAINING COURSE
The IMPLEMENT 4.0 training course is designed to improve knowledge of digital solutions among agricultural professionals and eventually improve the overall sustainability and competitiveness of the European agricultural sector. The course will consist of the following modules:
Module 1: Digital farming and crop protection technologies, corresponding to a basic EQF Level 3, will include the introduction of digital technologies, based on available data, machinery and farm-management software and tools linked to specific land-use patterns and existing good practices from Turkey, Italy and Spain.
Module 2: Proper combination of precision farming plant protection technologies and digital information on selected crops, corresponding to EQF Level 4, will be targeted to selected crops with a case-study based approach for crop protection technologies in Turkey, Italy and Spain.
Module 3: Digital data for farmers and certification system for sustainable farming, corresponding to EQF Level 5 and 6, will be focused on certification of digital farming linked to plant protection machineries and smart farming solutions.
IMPLEMENT 4.0 is directed at: a) farmers, sprayers operators and students; b) agronomists, trainers and persons in charge of the prevention and protection service at work; c) technicians in charge for functional controls of digitally managed sprayer machineries; d) manufacturers of sprayer machineries with specific reference to providing certification for machineries implemented with digital solutions.
Smart agriculture sets the grounds for the a more precise, efficient and sustainable agriculture of the future. IMPLEMENT 4.0 will raise the skills capacity and in-house functional knowledge of the target groups based on best practices from Turkey, Italy and Spain in order to improve the overall competitiveness of the EU farming sector and succeed in an increasingly digital, green and knowledge driven economy.
IMPLEMENT 4.0 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.
The project consortium consists of 7 partners from three European countries (Turkey, Italy, and Spain), coordinated by OMU from Turkey.
