AgTech7

A Knowledge Alliance of Agribusinesses, Academia and Business Angels for Disruptive Farm-to-Fork Agri-Tech Training

Project Concept

AgTech7 addresses the lack of inter-disciplinary knowledge and multi-actor mobilisation for future agri-tech disruptive applications on the entire farm-to-fork food-chain. The project will directly engage the following target-groups: 1) European HEIs’ and Research Institutes’ students, and, ‘in-house’ incubator managers; 2) Agribusiness companies; and 3) Angel-investors. The project will advance their knowledge to facilitate: 1) inter-disciplinarity in agro-education, integrating engineering innovation, agricultural know-how and entrepreneurial skills, while at the same time, 2) advancing European angels investors’ and startup service providers’ understanding on the emerging agri-tech future market opportunities.

Project Results

AgTech7 will follow a multi-actor co-creation approach into designing a comprehensive Curriculum with 7 agri-tech learning modules. The Curriculum will be put to test, following an agile and lean-training Methodology, into 4 face-to-face training deployments and one online MOOC-style e-learning platform with open-access and practical knowledge, adapting to the learning habits of each identified target-group. The project’s outcomes will undergo thorough quality assurance and external evaluation examination. Deep-impact dissemination actions and detailed sustainability planning will be put to practice. The project will conclude with an Agri-Tech Training Foresight report and a final Agri-Tech conference.
