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 on October 20, 2020.
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.
