The Smart Entrepreneurial Education and training in Digital farming – SEED project develops skills in agriculture by introducing a digital transformation in the profession.

The impact envisaged has been to design a joint VET qualification and foster transparency, comparability and recognition of qualifications. The project also has set up a new sustainable cooperation among partners, in order to create long-term developments.

The main target groups for SEED have been VET organisations (vocational education and training), their students and SMEs (small, medium enterprises) involved in agriculture. The project supported them by facilitating the development of skills and competences to meet labour market needs and also to be more flexible in anticipating future skills’ gaps.
