Alliance H@rvest conference – the sensors of the future

AgreenTech Valley, as an innovation partner of the Alliance H@rvest, has been invited to the annual conference organised on 30 May 2024 from 9am to 5pm on the AgroParisTech campus in Palaiseau (91) on the theme of ‘the sensors of the future in agriculture’.

As a reminder, the H@rvest Alliance aims to support the use of digital technology for the benefit of the agricultural sector to optimise the strategy, management and conduct of farms and stakeholder chains in order to meet the agricultural and food challenges of today and tomorrow.

The H@rvest Alliance combines the strengths of a chair of teaching, applied research and ideation dedicated to the general interest, with a maturation component focused on industrial projects. The first projects have already been launched, focusing in particular on the identification and development of platforms for consolidating data on agricultural practices, and on soil bioindicator data and the automation of data collection using new digital tools.

The programme for the Alliance H@rvest conference - the sensors of the future :  lectures, round tables and verbal jousting led by various speakers and students, with the aim of shedding light on the technologies of the future, with a focus on the sensors of the future in agriculture.
