INNOSETA

Project INNOSETA


Project Title : Accelerating Innovative practices for Spraying Equipment, Technologies and Applications in European agriculture through the mobilization of Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems
Funding : H2020
Duration : 2018-2020
Coordination : Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (Agricultural Machinery Unit)
Status IFV : Partner

Summary :
The main objective of INNOSETA is to set up an Innovative self-sustainable Thematic Network on Spraying Equipment, Training and Advising (SETA)  to contribute in closing the gap between the available novel high-end crop protection solutions either commercial or from applicable research results with the everyday European agricultural practices by promoting effective exchange of novel ideas and information between research, industry, extension and the farming community so that existing research and commercial solutions can be widely communicated, while capturing grassroots level needs and innovative ideas from the farming community.

INNOSETA focuses on
:

  • Synthesizing research results and industrial products available on the market on spraying equipment, training and advising (SETA).
  • Assessing farmers’ needs, innovative ideas and interests of best practices for spraying technologies and diffusion of these innovations within the social systems
  • Generating interactive and multi-actor innovation at regional level, supporting cross-border collaboration and ensuring the sustainability and links of the interregional multi-actor network on SETA with the EIP-AGRI and other EU wide initiatives. In this WP, recommendations, practice abstract required by the EIP-AGRI and policy briefs on SETA will be produced.
  • Setting up the “SETA Platform” supporting the creation of a SETA virtual Community
  • Conducting interactive dissemination activities

This project involves 14 partners including different academic centers such as l'Institut Français de la Vigne et du Vin (France), the University of Torino (Italy) or the Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Belgium) and associations such as the European Agricultural Machinery (CEMA), the European Association of Farmers (COPA-COGECA) or the European Crop Protection Association (ECPA). The Spanish farmer association UPA also participates at the national level.
