In October 2019 Pessl Instruments joined the kick-off meeting of the STARGATE project. Together with 26 partners, we are aiming to develop, test, implement and showcase a framework that will improve the resilience of farming systems to variable climatic conditions and extreme weather events. And now we need your assistance.
The STARGATE team prepared a simple poll that will only take a minute of your time but will act as an important piece of information for the future development of the project.
STARGATE POLL – What do I have to do?
We kindly ask you to click on the button or picture below and rate each line with 1 or 2 or 3 or 4, where 1 means the least important and 4 means the most important pillar of climate-smart agriculture.
Once you click on the button/picture, the following question will appear:
How would you rate the importance of the pillars of climate-smart agriculture?
- Sustainably increased productivity
- Enhanced achievement of food security
- Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
- Enhanced resilience of agricultural production to environmental change
About the project
The STARGATE project aspires to develop a breakthrough, multiscale and holistic climate-smart agriculture methodology, capitalizing innovations in the field of microclimate and weather risk management, as well as in the field of landscape design. It will be based on earth observation, weather/climate intelligence and IoT technologies to support a more effective farm management and related options for adaptation on climatic changes, policy formulation leading to better landscape management, protection against climatic risks and implementation related to mitigation on microclimate changes.
The SSTARGATE project will run for 48 months until September 2023 and involves 26 partners from Greece, Czech Republic, Israel, Spain, Latvia, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Portugal, Poland, Germany, Norway, and Belgium.
