Benefits and impact of digital technologies

Digitisation raises questions that will need to be addressed in the future. What will be the impact on farm profitability, for instance? How will digitisation affect employment? Can it be a means to reconnect consumers with farmers? What is the environmental impact? Or which types of farming will or will not benefit?

The European Commission and the EIP-AGRI network are fully aware of the potentially disruptive impact digitisation might have. This is why issues like data ownership, data use and re-use have been addressed in dedicated workshops and seminars to find answers.

Already many organisations have measured the impact and benefits of digitisation. Share your stories with us through this form.
