A strategic approach is required to preserve the long-term competitiveness and sustainability of the European agricultural sector, by identifying new skills in relation to bio-Economy, sustainability and the use of digital technology.
Through the FIELDS project (30 partners from 12 countries), current and future opportunities in the above sectors for farming are explored, in order to address deficiencies and shortcomings in skills, and recommend suitable training material.
GAIA EPICHEIREIN is contributing to the support of this education and training programme by outlining specific goals, needs, and study programmes, and by developing suitable content for online classes. At the same time, we are participating in the organisation of workshops on a national and EU level, while also supporting the dissemination of the project.
