AgTech : innovative solutions for a green transition, a sustainable and digital agriculture
The definition of Ag Tech is often limited to digital start-ups; however, the latter are available in all new technologies related to agriculture or more generally to the Agrifood sector (digital, biotechnology, big data, etc ...).
What they have in common is their capacity for innovation in terms of products and services resulting from R&D projects, financed by national, European and even international calls.
This webinar will allow you to better understand the specificity of these AgTech companies with a Tour of Europe carried out by Business France.
We will then illustrate by the testimony of 3 French, Polish and Spanish AgTech, their contribution in terms of innovation to meet the expectations of a more environmentally friendly and sustainable agriculture.
It will be also an opportunity to underline the main sources of funding for these innovations in the Agrifood sector with a focus on the Green Deal and the national post-Covid 19 recovery programs supported by the European Next Generation plan.
