INNOSETA

The UMA coordinates the European project Innovative practices for Spraying Equipment, Training and Advising in European agriculture through the Mobilization of Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems (INNOSETA), financed by the Horizon 2020 program and in which 14 European partners participate between universities, centers of research, associations of manufacturers and farmers.

The main objective of the INNOSETA project is to establish a self-sustaining and innovative thematic network on crop protection and the sustainable use of plant protection products (spray equipment, training and advice) to help close the gap between the numerous European research projects and the use that farmers make of all this. The project promotes the exchange of new ideas and information between the industry, the university and the research centers and the agricultural community so that existing scientific and commercial solutions can be widely disseminated and applied, while identifying the needs of the sector. The aim is to eliminate the gap between the scientific world and the agricultural sector, in relation to the objectives set by the Commission of Agriculture of the European Commission.

This project involves different academic centers such as l'Institut Français de la Vigne et du Vin (France), the University of Torino (Italy) or the Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Belgium) and associations such as the European Agricultural Machinery (CEMA), the European Association of Farmers (COPA-COGECA) or the European Crop Protection Association (ECPA). The Spanish farmer association UPA also participates at the national level.
