FINT offers Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for the Smart Agriculture domain and within this context the company pledges to raise awareness among the farming multi-stakeholder community about IoT/ BigData/ Technology-enabled Agriculture and the possibilities they give them for an efficient, effective and overall sustainable farming.
FINT will organise workshops for farmers and stakeholders in the agriculture sector to demonstrate the variety of technology tools (open-source from public organisations or private but free to use), which would allow smart farming, digital content creation and data sharing. These information workshops will be free for end-users (farmers). They may be organized in partnership with public administration organizations (municipalities, regions), educational institutions (in the agricultural domain), and cooperatives. Follow up practical training on the use of specific tools is foreseen but is dependent on the interest of partner organizations.
FINT aims to unveil the benefits for a community to create local -digital- content and share it with other partners. By 2020, FINT expects to have extensive synergies with at least 100 people who will be introduced to the basics of the Data Economy and its role in the emerging Digital Single Market from the Agricultural perspective. As a result, FINT assumes that the key take-outs would heavily impact the digital divide minimization -especially in the case of farmers in rural areas- while a new nest of interconnected business models will be proposed by the re-skilled end-users themselves soon after they grasp the concept of data as the new oil for the EU economy.
