2nd Regional ICT-ENSURE Workshop

15 January 2009, Paris

Information technology applications play an increasingly important role in human interaction with the biosphere. New sensors multiply the potential of ICT in assessing biodiversity. Precision farming is starting to be widely applied, robotics is making fast progress, changing the face of agriculture, and ICT could be a key tool in maintaining agricultural biodiversity. At the same time, information technology makes it possible to create new networks, in which farmers, scientists and activists can exchange information and best practices. The workshop both discussed technical developments in ICT application and networking aspects.

Thematically the workshop focused on the fields of agriculture, including agrodiversity and biodiversity, while in the area of ICT methods monitoring, processing and networking was distinguished.
22 participants (19 speakers, 3 registered participants) from 12 countries (9 EU countries)
