The program emphasizes cooperation, innovation, and the implementation of good practice in Precision Agriculture.
Fifty students and 14 teachers from the participating universities were hosted by Perrotis College, and joined in interactive workshops in areas including Precision Agriculture, Robotics, IT, Geographic Information Systems, Data Management, and more. During the final phase of the program, participants spent five days working with partner companies, and received a certificate for nine MSc-level course credits upon completion.
