‘Agriculture 4.0’ is a term for the next big trends facing the industry, including a greater focus on precision agriculture, the internet of things (IoT) and the use of big data to drive greater business efficiencies in the face of rising populations and climate change. New agriculture 4.0 technologies can promote farming practices that are more efficient, productive, and sustainable and can contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation.  In Italy, this is one of the important legacies of EXPO 2015 which was organized in Milan, Italy, on the theme Feeding the Planet, Energy for the world. In Singapore, we are also collectively working towards our 30-by 30 goals to reduce its dependence on food imports. Therefore, despite the differences in the 2 countries, both markets are working towards adopting agriculture 4.0 technologies to increase farming productivity and sustainably. This requires a common effort of public agencies, research institutes, universities, corporates, start-ups both at the local and international level.  Join us in presentations of research activities and plans of Singapore and Italy, followed by a panel discussion also with agriculture 4.0 startups.  Date: 9 February 2022, Wednesday Time: 4:30pm - 5:30pm (Singapore Time / UTC +8)  Program:   4:30pm - 4:35pm: Opening Remarks by SGInnovate and Embassy of Italy in Singapore  Hsien-Hui Tong, Head of Venture Investing, SGInnovate
