The VIRAL (Vitalising ICT Relevance In Agricultural Learning) project proposal will be funded in the scope of Erasmus+ KA2 (KA2 – Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices – Capacity Building in the field of Higher Education) by the European Commission.
From the Information Technology Group (INF), Cagatay Catal and Bedir Tekinerdogan are involved in this proposal. Sixteen partners from Balkans will participate to this Erasmus+ project. The overall project aim of VIRAL is to support university and business collaboration (UBC) through accelerating the use of ICT across Western Balkans agro-communities.
The concept is led by relevant regional agricultural educational and/or training (AET) facilities and based on enabling the use of different ICT solutions/techniques/tools in the classroom and outside of it in order to obtain desired integration of agriculture and engineering which in effect reinforces UBC across regional agro communities.
