High-Level Forum Africa-Europe, 18th December, Vienna 2018 – Taking cooperation to the digital age

Pessl Instruments Is Joining the High-Level Forum to Present the Importance of IoT Solutions in the Development of Agriculture

Sebastian Kurz, Federal Chancellor of the Republic of Austria, holding the rotating presidency of the Council of the EU, and Paul Kagame, President of the Republic of Rwanda and current Chairperson of the African Union, invite CEOs of major global companies to join the High-Level Forum Africa-Europe on 18th of December in Vienna, Austria.

Attendees will discuss the possibilities how to deepen the relationship between Europe and Africa, with specific focus on innovation and digitalisation, technology exchange and trade, how to secure prosperity and competitiveness on both continents.

We are happy to say that our CEO and Founder Gottfried Pessl will also take part in this important event. He will attend the Round Table that will focus on the key themes linked to innovation. Especially interesting and related to our company’s field of expertise will be the Agriculture 4.0 Round Table in which the effects of digitalization on farming and how it helps solve problems like low productivity, weather irregularities, poor infrastructure and soil degradations will be discussed.

We see this as a great opportunity to show how farmers can benefit from innovative technologies, how it can help them secure their input, increase efficiency and productivity, help them save energy, and also talk about the importance of sustainability that lowers the risk for environmental changes. By presenting our IoT solutions and all the advantages they convey, we are hoping to bring precision agriculture closer to farmers.

We are looking forward to what tomorrow’s Forum brings and will gladly share our insights afterwards. If you would like to meet Mr. Pessl after the Agriculture 4.0 Round Table please contact him by mail ([email protected]).
