EIP-AGRI Focus Group Mainstreaming Precision Farming
Period: 28.04.2014-
Granted by the European Union

Research and development in precision farming has led to the availability of a large number of sensors capable of collecting data: e.g. soil sensing and crop sensing techniques for precision crop farming, early warning systems for pig production, automatic lameness detection for cows and sows etc. When large volumes of data (big data) are coming from different types of sensors they need to be processed, integrated and combined with economic data into decision support systems that allow farmers to take the right management decisions. There is a need for further development of user-friendly IT applications for precision farming and for accompanying measures to facilitate the mainstreaming of precision farming in the EU.

Colour and Space in Cultural Heritage (COSCH)
Granted by the European Union
Period: 7.11.2012 – 7.11.2016
Managing Director: Prof. Dr. Ing. Frank Boochs

This COST Action (TD 1201) contributes to the enhanced understanding of material of our cultural heritage (CH). Documentation of CH involves researchers, scientists and professionals from multiple disciplines and industries. There is a need to promote research, development and application of non-contact optical measurement techniques (spectral and spatial) – adapted to the needs of heritage documentation – on a concerted European level, in order to protect, preserve, analyse understand, model, virtually reproduce, document and publish important CH in Europe and beyond.
