Agriculture, Fishing & Aquaculture and Forestry

Agriculture has been identified as one of the priority sectors showing positive prospects for intelligent development within the framework of the Smart Specialization Strategy (S3). In the S3 mapping report titled "Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis of Economic, Research-Scientific, and Innovative Capacities, Resources, and Potentials for Smart Specialization" (2022), Agriculture was identified as one of the priority areas. Technological innovation in the agricultural sector is considered highly important for reducing costs, increasing productivity, production, income for agricultural units, as well as addressing labor market gaps. Recently, there have been interesting experiences in the agricultural sector related to the use of robotics and automation solutions and investments in innovation.
