Evaluation of O1: e-Competence Map of Agricultural workers for Agriculture 4.0

Evaluation of O1: e-Competence Map of Agricultural workers for Agriculture 4.0

Intellectual Outcome 1 aimed to build a general state-of-art overview about the ICT uptake of agricultural companies in Macedonia and in Hungary, the present level of Agriculture 4.0 relative to the EU trend, and about the offer and demand in the agricultural workforce with special focus on the digital competences of the workers.
An extensive analysis of the state of the art in use of ICT in agriculture and precision farming was conducted im each target country as well as on the level of EU. These analyses serve as a baseline for following parts of the project. Additionally, a survey was devised to get relevant information directly at the source – from local farmers and representatives of agricultural enterprises.
A survey was conducted among farmers from target countries. Apart from getting basic background information about the respondents (type of farm, size, number of employees etc.), the main goal was to ascertain the level of knowledge about ICT tools and precision farming methods among the farmers and its level of utilization. In Hungary, 64 representatives of agricultural enterprises took part in the survey, while in Macedonia it was 11 respondents.

Translation, review
 
Indicators
Minimum number of samples (MK, HU):
At least 10-12 companies in Macedonia and 15-20 companies in Hungary in the survey.
A final summary will be produced covering the individual state-of-art reports, and on the results of the survey. This will be used to elaborate a suggested Competence Framework for ICT skills within the sector. Language: English; size: circa10-15 p
 
The final result is a detailed Competence Map of the middle-level agricultural workers, described in terms of the EQF (European Qualification Framework) descriptors and aligned with the e-Competence Framework.
