Special Feature: The farms of the future – it’s all about precision


This feature-packed issue includes an additional four pages looking back at Research*EU’s accomplishments over the years.  The Special Section examines the practices and technologies being developed under the umbrella of precision farming.  Automated management systems, animal and plant-borne sensors, pocket diagnostic devices and farm robots are all helping to bring new efficiencies to Europe’s farmers, supporting Europe’s transition to a high-value agricultural system.  As Always, this issue brings you the latest EU-funded research and innovation from a range of sectors, including health, society, industry and space.  Life After, also catches-up with past project BPR4GDPR and discovers how it is continuing to help EU businesses keep their clients’ data safe.  Finally, this month's Project of the Month, takes a look at SHAPES, an Irish start-up that is helping to make the entire world accessible to everyone.
