On Using Wireless Sensors and Artificial Intelligence for implementing a Smart agriculture scheme in Algeria
Improving the sustainability of Mediterranean agro-ecosystems (Section 1) Adaptation of agriculture to climate change (Section 2) Developing farming systems able to generate income, to create employment and to contribute to a balanced territorial development (Section 2)

Our team aims at in investigating sustainable smart agriculture by relying on wireless communications, and machine learning tools. Based on the data sensed from the environment , the soil and the crop, and the expertise gathered in a certain way, the intelligent system will command the intensity of the irrigation (and other actions if this is possible). The system is to be tested on a selected farm in a semi-arid (arid) region of the Algerian desert .
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
CDTA is a public establishment of Science and technology in Algiers created in 1982. One of the main aim of the CDTA is internationalisation and in this scope has established a number of international agreements with different Universities and institutes.
We are interested in establishing a patnership with Algerian actors, Egypt, and mainly European ones on the northern shore of the mediterranean sea. After checking the intentions of the former on "find partners" , and selecting the organisations which have a close research/developpement interests with us, we invite "university of Oran 1 Ahmed ben Bella" (which has a proposal very similar to ours) , University Mustapha Stambouli, Mascara with its proposal "Sustainable Agriculture Through Innovation and Collaboration " and "Unité de Recherche Appliquée en Energies Renouvelables, URAER, Centre de Développement des Energies Renouvelables, CDER, Ghardaïa", to be in the same consortium as us.
We also hope that the "National Research Center" from Egypt will join the same consortium.
From Europe: We will be glad to see the following countries in the same institution:
Fraunhofer (Germany), Spain, Greece (such as TEI of THESSALY)., Portugal, France, Turkey (Directorate of Research Institute of Soil Water and Combating Desertification), Italy (University Niccolò Cusano and Nonit Srl - spin off University of Perugia ).
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
