Work Package 4:Transfer of innovative technologies to the horticultural sector

WP4 aims to bring the current state-of-the-art, as benchmarked in WP3, to the next level. The benchmark gives an overview of the current situation. Gaps in currently used technologies to reach the desirable situation pointed out in T3.3 are identified and technologies from other sectors, e.g. agricultural sector but also the process industry or mining industry may be able to fill those gaps. Technologies from other sectors than the horticultural sector are identified that may enhance sustainable water use in the horticultural sector. To bring the growers to use innovative technologies, a business model is developed that shows the benefit of implementing solutions for both the growers and the technology providers.
The results of WP4 will be transferred to the platform during the workshop of WP5.
