Primo workshop – Capsella, Volterra – PI

1st Workshop
May 30 & 31 2016

At Floriddia Organic Farm & SIAF, Volterra, Italy


About the Workshop
The workshop is aimed at supporting the development of an open, horizontal and dynamic agricultural knowledge base, through a strong bottom up approach.
CAPSELLA, an EC co-funded project, aims at raising awareness on the benefits of using ICTs in agriculture and developing novel information and communication technologies (ICT) for biodiversity based agriculture. To do so, actors, players and stakeholders, interested in these technologies will be involved in the research process, and will be able to express their requirements and needs, which will constitute the basis for CAPSELLA’s activities during the following two years.
During the two-day meeting, participants will also engage in informal discussions to share knowledge and experiences on the use of data and information resources for sustainable agriculture.
Discussion will be kicked off on farm, focusing on the very heart of agro-ecology: the living soil and the biodiversity it sustains. Then, the communities of farmers, researchers and activists will be engaged in discussing how to foster links between actors in agro-biodiversity. Real examples of how effective use of data through innovative ICTs can support agro-ecological farming will animate the discussion. Participants will work interactively in small groups, through flexible brainstorming sessions organised in thematic Round Tables. This work, split over two days, will result in effective exchanges of knowledge and expertise among participants and will be moderated/chaired by facilitators who will ensure effective and concrete outcomes. The general aim of CAPSELLA will be turned into practical objectives thanks to the experiential, participatory and bottom up work throughout the duration of the workshop.
