DRAGON aims to overcome one of the main challenges in precision agriculture (PA) – low rate of adoption of PA technologies and practices, especially concerning the “big data in agriculture”.
To enhance the long-term scientific & technological capacity of BioSense researchers to perform analyses of multiscale multisource data comprising
1) Satellite & Mobile phone-generated data
2) IoT-generated data
To perform training and nurturing of young researchers to develop their career in data-driven PA and promotion of opportunities for further career development within BioSense and partner institutions – Wageningen University (the Netherlands) and Agri-EPI Centre (UK)
To enable data-driven PA eco-system development by providing resources to be accessed through agricultural knowledge and information systems.
To enhance BioSense researchers’ capability to communicate high-tech knowledge and related legislative matters in the PA sector to various stakeholders and non-scientific local community in order to achieve better dissemination/diffusion and subsequent adoption of the PA innovative data-driven solutions
1: Project management
2: Enhancing BIOS S&T expertise in PA
3: Enhancing BIOS COMMunication expertise in PA
