According to the United Nations, the global population is projected to reach nine billion by 2036. Supply shortages and hunger are already pressing issues in many regions. Simultaneously, agriculture must align with modern strategies to combat climate change. These challenges necessitate a transformative boost in sector efficiency.
Central to this progress is the digitalization of agriculture. It positively impacts the health of crops, plants, and animals, as well as food processing, supply chains, and environmental oversight. This agricultural shift yields positive effects on both individuals and society.
As resources realign, technology supplements human labor, paving the way for fresh business prospects and job openings. This catalog, aptly named “AgriSkills Reference Cataogue”, delves into this transformation’s impact, scrutinizing a wide array of innovative technologies, goos practices and requisite skillsets. It also spotlights technology-driven applications driving this evolution. The catalog draws from diverse perspectives, presenting numerous best practices and expert insights from countries including Germany, Austria, Slovenia, North Macedonia, and various other European countries.
While project partners play a significant role in offering good practices and showcases, valuable contributions also come from VET providers and innovation support advisors. Together, they form a rich tapestry of expertise driving agricultural innovation.
The “AgriSkills Reference Catalogue” is an invaluable companion to the AgriSkills Training Course. It features a curated collection of best practices and insightful showcases, conveniently accessible on the AgriSkills eLearning Platform.
