Since 2017, Junia ISA’s Agricultural Science department has been heading up an Erasmus Plus KA2 project on Smart Farming in collaboration with seven European partner universities.
The Closing Symposium will be the opportunity to demonstrate the goals and achievements of this project, as well as highlight this collaborative effort’s role in the future of European agriculture.
The conference will include special addresses from ISA Lille management and staff to outline the origins of the project and summarize the results and impact of transnational cooperation. In addition, faculty from ISA Lille’s Agricultural Science department will present ongoing and upcoming research, projects, and cooperation opportunities.
ISA Lille will also provide an introduction to the agricultural technology entrepreneurial sector in the Northern France. Guest speakers from local precision agricultural companies and project leaders will present the richness of this sector. A highlight is certainly the startup incubation available at Euratechnologies business cluster.
Giving students opportunities to gain professional experience has been an essential part of this project since the beginning. Thus student participants from each partner university will share their experience (either live or through video). What’s more, PhD students from each partner university will present their research projects in a special Discover my Thesis challenge. Inviting students to participate in this international symposium will introduce another aspect of what they will experience in their careers as international agricultural engineers.
