Project description

A FarmBook to connect farmers and researchers

The EU is one of the world's leading producers and exporters of agricultural products thanks to its varied climate, fertile soil, and the technical skills of its farmers. The EU financially supports its farmers, and encourages sustainable and eco-friendly practices. Since 2014, the EU has invested in a large number of agriculture-based research, innovation, coordination and support actions to improve knowledge flows. The EU-funded Eureka project is building on this by creating an open source e-platform called the FarmBook. Inspired by Facebook, this two-sided platform will connect farmers, foresters, advisors, scientists and policymakers, among others, with 21 multi-actors from 16 member states and 48 organisations. The open-source FarmBook will present knowledge that is easily searchable.
