The Project

    Digital Skills in Farming for Future Agriculture (DIGITAG)

Digital technologies can support Europeans working in the agri-food sector in providing safe, sustainable, and quality food. Not only do they help them “produce more with less”, but they can also contribute to fighting climate change. Digitisation can also play a role in creating a better life in Europe’s rural areas.  The European Commission (EC) aims to make the agricultural sector and rural areas in Europe digitised and data-empowered.

The aim of the project is to develop a model of digital skills vocational training course for persons working in the agri-food
sector and living in rural areas, they can learn to assess and implement the best practices and technologies for their
work. Specific objectives of the project are:

  • To design and deploy an innovative upskilling pathway addressed to persons involved in the agri-food sector and living in rural areas.
  • To foster the development of digital skills and competencies among persons working in the agri-food sector and living in rural areas by proposing innovative, flexible learning opportunities
    in different settings (face-to-face, blended, and online)
  • To promote EUROPAS as a tool for participants to document their skills and experience
  • To Develop a digital repository of Open Educational Resources for digital skills development that meet the specific needs of persons working in the agri-food sector and living in rural areas
  • To support VET teachers and trainers to develop and use their resources by proposing a learning scenario model.
  • To reduce the digital gap in rural areas in Europe through non-formal and informal education;
  • To Promote lifelong learning in rural areas as a tool for socio-economic development.
