Product description

By applying high-tech systems and materials along with new ICT applications, the agricultural and food sector will be better able to handle the big societal challenges which they face. In addition, this will improve the competitiveness of these sectors and create opportunities to market the new systems and applications. Conversely, the high-tech sectors are challenged to find solutions to problems that so far have obstructed the application of these systems, like the non-uniformity of products, the conditions for performance and the limited economic capacity for innovations. In order to develop these opportunities, it is necessary that there is intensive cooperation between the sectors concerned through cross-overs. The fields of application breeding, horticulture, agriculture, animal production, ingredients, food products and machinery for food processing are intertwined with technological development in the field of materials, data acquisition, data analysis and use, automation and control, and system architecture and integration. This creates an interdisciplinary programme in which applications can be developed through a wide range of approaches. To this end, roadmaps with long-term objectives have been formulated to enable parties from different sectors to find each other. Via back-casting, shorter-term goals are formulated which are realised in multidisciplinary teams, especially involving SMEs. An additional advantage is that the agricultural and food sectors will have first-hand experience of the benefits of open innovation, in which high-tech sectors excel. Societal acceptance and appreciation of the applications will also play an important role, because results only lead to innovation if they are accepted in the market. Another important aspect in the agricultural and food industry is the economic viability of the application. Therefore, this aspect will be considered from the beginning and will be incorporated into the system design
