Aim of the joint call "This call aims to support research projects with potential impact to enable digital technology solutions for a transition towards more sustainable and resilient agri-food systems. Research projects should investigate, develop and test digital solutions for the rising demand for food, competition for land and other natural resources from other biomass uses, globalisation, and threats from animal or plant diseases, environmental and climatic changes, public health considerations and economic constraints. The scientific scope of the call addresses collaborative projects in the two research topics described below. TOPIC 1 - Data-driven ICT platforms and solutions to improve the sustainability of agrifood Systems TOPIC 2 – Identify and address barriers for adoption of ICT technologies in the agri- food systems"
