CEMA ECONOMIC FORUM

Agriculture and Rural Development
Date: Thursday, 12 October 2017 09:00

Venue: Hotel Sofitel  |  City: Etterbeek, Belgium

In agriculture, the pace of innovation is moving ahead fast these days: Precision Farming, digital technologies and intelligent farm machines are transforming farm practices in hitherto unknown depth and speed. Agriculture today is a high-tech sector in which “producing better and more with less” is a central tenet to achieve greater environmental sustainability and allow European farmers to produce in the wake of sharply increasing global trade and competition.

In addition, the use of digital tools is opening up entirely new business models and opportunities and is thus poised to disrupt the world of farming as we know it today. Smart farm machines harvest huge amounts of data, cloud-based platforms help farmers in managing their operations from a smart phone. Together with other digital support tools farmers can now acquire an unprecedented level of knowledge about their crops, livestock, and operations.

The CEMA 2017 Summit will bring together EU decision-makers, industry leaders, farmers’ representatives, digital experts, and agri-food stakeholders to discuss:

  • How will Digital Farming, automated equipment & robots transform agriculture in Europe?

  • What new business models will arise from the new technologies?

  • How can the future Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) shape the further development and uptake of “Digital Farming” in Europe?

  • How can Europe’s farm machinery industry best drive forward innovation in agriculture?

  • What can EU Regulation do to support innovation and uptake of digital farming tools and preserve Europe’s technology lead in this field?
