The SmartFarmer project “Improving skills for Smartfarming as an innovative tool for rural development and economic growth” aims to create and develop a training programme, a long term superfood electronic platform and a guide book. The purpose of these outputs is to enhance the dissemination and transfer of knowledge and innovation in the specialized agricultural areas of the selected superfoods (e.g. goji berries, blueberries etc).
The project will be implemented by a consortium of 7 partners from 5 EU countries spanning from North to South of Europe (Cyprus, Spain, Latvia, Greece and Portugal). The consortium includes education and training organisations, authorities responsible for rural development, thus allowing combining different views and experiences.
The project has been funded with support from the European Commission in 2013 and 2014
