SmartRural

Are you a farmer or from a farming community?

Cork Institute of Technology has designed an Exclusive 1 Day Free Training Course for Irish Farmers. If you are a farmer or from a farming community, this is a great chance to see how Smart phones and online technology can empower rural communities. 

What is Smart Technology?

Smart technology is leading the way in many sectors with agriculture and agritech seeing major developments in this regard in recent years. SmartRural is an innovative European Funded Erasmus + research project which looks at at how mobile applications can be used to enhance agricultural activities as well as improving productivity, social and economic activities in rural communities. The project will see the rollout of training courses in France, Spain and Ireland to rural communities and is aimed at farmers, their spouses or anyone indeed with an interest in agriculture and technology from those communities.

Phase 1 of the Project is now complete with CIT running three instances of the Training in January 2018 and an AgriTech field trip to ICBF Bandon and Clonakilty Agricultural College. Further training material and events will be announced between Feb and April 2018.
