The VitiGEOSS project was presented during the session “EuroGEO for agriculture in support of the partnership “Agriculture of Data” and the European Green Deal” held within the EuroGEO Workshop and celebrated last 7th of December in Athens, Greece.
The session had the objective to map the way forward on how EO based services support the sector to become more sustainable, as well as present and discuss the partnership for “Agriculture of Data” and define which research needs and European wide activities should be addressed.

The presentation also offered an explanation of all the solutions promoted by the project which include weather and climate services, phenological monitoring and crop status tools, disease management system, business management and sustainability indicators.
Additionally, the session also included the presentation of other European projects working in the field of Earth Observation and agriculture research: e-SHAPE, ENVISION, NextLAND, CYBELE, AfriCultuReS and TWIGA.
