This joined conference takes place from 12th to 13th of May, whereby there are specific meetings and training courses the days before and afterwards, on Monday and Thursday.

The topic of our PROGIS conference is the request for concerted actions to ensure that agriculture will be able to feed worldwide the ongoing growing population.

Climate change, the reduction of natural resources, a stronger demand for bio-energy, urbanization and environmental protection, are additional mega-trends that have to be considered by this so important economic sector. Hence, globally there is a strong demand for technologies and practical instruments for improving the planning, development and management of agriculture, forestry or in general natural resources.

The PROGIS conference deals with visions and their practical implementations in a flourishing agriculture.

There will be shown how the single members of the food processing chain will move together to achieve through networks of work processes significant improvements by using Information and Coomunication Technologies as they are a basic requirement to reach the targeted improvements.
