From 7 to 11 November, the Digital Farmer International Workshop was held in Naples.
It was a moment of confrontation between different expertise and minds to discuss all together two of the project outputs: the manual "Digital VET Trainer in Agriculture" and the manual "Digital Traineeship in Agriculture".
While the fist one will focus on digital tools for teaching in agriculture, the second has to do with digital innovations in agriculture and how to implement distance learning traineeships. Specifically, the partners defined how to structure the chapters, what kind of content to include and what insights to make the manuals as accessible and valuable as possible to educators, trainers and VET providers.

Finally, they defined the next steps to be taken, i.e. how and where to implement digital traineeships.

On 1st March, partners met for three days in Naples for the first Kick Off meeting of the project. This was an important opportunity for partners to meet face to face and to better discuss all project activities and schedule. Partners coordinated their work together and defined the contents of surveys to be carried out during local roundtables in each partner’s country: this activity will be a relevant activity for the whole project and for developing very innovative teaching methods and approaches for the training course which will then be developed. Each partner will now carry out local roundtables before meeting again for the International Workshop.


Today seven different partners met online for the start of the activities of the project Digital Farmer, a new Cooperation Partnership in the Framework of the Erasmus+ programme. This project will involve partners from seven different countries: Cosvitec Università&Impresa from Italy; Pamukkale Üniversitesi from Turkey; Agency for territorial marketing from Slovenia; Accion Laboral Avila from Spain; Business Inovation Council from Romania; Institute for the Promotion and Certification of Agri-Food Products from Greece and Estonian Fieldbus Competency Centre from Estonia.

In March, each partner will be glad to meet face to face for the first Kick Off meeting which will be held in Naples at Cosvitec, project’s coordinator.


The project Digital Farmer has been designed to respond to the needs of agriculture and food production sector which are changing so fast following the employment of digital technologies.
