To close out the last three years of cooperation between the Erasmus Plus KA2 Smart Farming partner universities, ISA Lille is hosting the project’s final symposium in October 2020.
Naturally the health and safety of attendees is the first consideration, so the program will be streamed online live for anyone limited from participating by health concerns or travel restrictions.
So wherever you are: save the date for this special occasion where all participants and partners will have the chance to see the fruit of our labor!
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.
Between transnational meetings, countless hours on video calls, three intensive programs (including one completed online!), developing online courses in a range of subjects, advising teams in transnational projects, and working closing with private and public administration partners, we can all agree: this project has been an enriching learning experience for everyone. Join us to celebrate the success achieved and lessons learned!
