On 9-10 December 2021, the European Commission and the EIP-AGRI Support Facility are organising the online workshop ‘Farm data for better farm performance’.
Digital technologies and data-based solutions can help farmers work more precisely, efficiently, and sustainably, improving decision-making and farming practices, and helping increase farm’s environmental performance and competitiveness, whilst also making farming jobs more attractive to younger generations. Collaborative data sharing models play a key role in ensuring that data driven strategies add value to the agri-food chain. On the other hand, data sharing also raises challenges for farmers such as privacy concerns, data protection and ownership.
The overall aims of this workshop are:
- Take stock of on-going successful projects and initiatives that collect and make use of farm generated data to improve economic and environmental performance.
- Explore the role of the different stakeholders on economic and environmental data collection at farms and their use for agricultural production.
- Provide an environment to exchange best practices on economic and environmental farm data collection, use and sharing.
