Agriculture, innovation 4.0 and internal areas

The students of the Federico II University of Naples discuss the future of rural areas with Minister Giuseppe Provenzano where it is possible to imagine that technologies bring innovation, including social ones, with positive economic and environmental effects for people and territories, also becoming references for urban realities.
Starting from the vision presented at the Maker Faire Rome 2020 of the documentary # Campdigrano4.0, made during one of the digital literacy activities of the PIDMed project (born with a project of the Federico II University of Naples and Unioncamere) in Caselle in Pittari, in the internal areas of the Cilento National Park, this meeting aims to be an opportunity to open a discussion with Minister Giuseppe Provenzano on two main issues:

national policies for the development of territories and the South, within the broad framework of European strategies and policies, on issues of agrifood and technological innovation for sustainable development;

the role of technologies to recompose fragmentation and overcome social disarticulation, trying to understand if and how advanced technologies (big data, robotics, 3D printing, artificial intelligence ...) can be used in contexts such as that of the South and inland areas, with the idea of ​​bending technologies to the well-being of society, producing a positive (and improving) effect for people and communities;

the responsibility and perspectives of the university and research system and of key figures such as social innovators and a new generation of agricultural experts.
