Precision Agriculture: What EU do Farmers Want?
This EURACTIV-GIGAEurope Digital Debate will examine how digital technologies can support global efforts to tackle food security issues and make agriculture more sustainable.
Questions to be addressed include:
– What are the current attitudes and adoption rates of precision agriculture tools of Europe’s farms?
– What environmental challenges do farmers face and what is the role precision agriculture can play in tackling these?
– What is industry doing to address farmers’ concerns around privacy and data ownership?
– What sort of regulatory assurances can policymakers provide if farmers invest in precision farming tools?
We support a strong and harmonised European Digital Single Market, with a clear focus on enabling regulatory and market conditions that allow for sustainable investment and innovation in gigabit infrastructure and IoT.
GIGAEurope aims to highlight the importance of EU policies, supporting sustainable investment and competition. We believe that European policies should be based on long-term objectives, with regulatory intervention where the market fails to provide efficient outcomes.
Working with vertical players and policy makers, we aim to reduce market fragmentation and establish a level playing field across the whole digital ecosystem.
TRUST IN CONNECTIVITY
Trust is key for Europeans to participate in a fast-changing digital world and embrace new technologies. Gigabit network providers need to convey this trust by providing secure & reliable access to the digital world.
No one can be left behind. All Europeans need to have access to next generation digital services enabled by gigabit networks. That is why we need investments in upgrading and rolling-out gigabit networks.
DIGITAL AND GREEN TRANSFORMATION
Gigabit connectivity accelerates the digital and green transformation of economies and society. Gigabit networks enable new advanced digital services in fields like e-health, e-mobility and smart cities.
Gigabit access is key to the digital & green transition and to make Europe carbon neutral by 2050. Innovations with an energy efficiency focus make gigabit networks consume less energy.
