eTomato - a new like-minded initiative

Addressing the needs of farmers and agriculture through training activities

The University of Foggia has recently taken the lead of another relevant EU project addressing the needs of farmers and agriculture: eTOMATO is an Erasmus+ funded project comprising of three SKIN partners (UNIFG, UGENT, & TINADA), which aims at training the academia and the rural sector in the field of Multifunctional Agriculture. The current educational offer suffers in fact of the adequate training to shape modern farmers: to this, multifunctionality helps coping with today’s challenges related to environmental threats, increased competition and so forth.

The project has been inspired by practices presented in SKIN, as the shorter the food chains, the broader and better diversified the activities farmers undertake to cover the roles usually performed by others.
