Agriculture requires innovations to increase production yields in terms of quantity and quality, but also to increase efficiency in resource management. It is necessary to reduce environmental impact and production costs, in a context of climate change and market globalization.
Precision farming is gaining a crucial role in helping farmers run their businesses in a way that is productive and sustainable. Although the Central European area is the core of EU manufacturing, precision farming has not been high in the agenda and focus of smart specialization in our regions.

The project Transfarm 4.0 aims at increasing the direct participation of farmers in the precision farming sector and boosting the competitiveness of the European precision farming advanced manufacturing supply chains.

Transfarm 4.0 will scout new demand-driven precision farming solutions to meet the needs of the farmers. Within the project, companies, clusters, research institutions and farmers will interact to bring new technological solutions to the market. 

transfarm 4.0 final event

Transfarm 4.0 has come to an end and what better way to say goodbye than inviting researchers, farmers, companies to the project final event in Susegana, one of the towns dotted across the breathtaking, vineyard-covered landscape of the rolling Conegliano and Valdobbiadene Prosecco Hills. The event took place on 16 June 2022 at the CREA Experimental and Conference Centre in Susegana, a municipality in the Province of Treviso. If you missed you can still watch the recording on the YouTube Channel of FederUnacoma.

FIWARE in the vineyard

LCM has equipped a vineyard in Tata, Hungary, with a sensor and data logging system. This system is measuring more than 100 vegetation and climate-related parameters. The data resulting from the 32 sensors are acquired via the FIWARE-plattform and sent to a FIWARE data lake. Learn more

11 exciting visits to different Precision Farming companies and start-ups: that’s the main figure resulting from Transfarm4.0’s study tour to Israel, where our team has learnt interesting aspects and features of local agriculture.



Transfarm 4.0 pays much attention to dissemination through different communication channels. The Twitter account and LinkedIn page are really active and help build an informed precision farming community. Now, a project leaflet has been prepared as a further channel of dissemination. It has been designed in English and then translated in the other five languages spoken within the consortium, i.e. German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish and Slovenian.


Project Partners

Transfarm 4.0's family is made up of 10 partners from 5 central European countries.
