Thus the AGRICOM Conference aims to provide an opportunity for meeting and discussion between scientists and experts from all over Europe who deal with competence modelling as well as educational and training issues in the field of agriculture.

  • Agronomists, horticulturalists, greenhouse and nursery managers, extension specialists, and people involved in crop management
  • International institutions harmonising competence descriptions in agriculture
  • National & regional authorities describing competences in policies in agriculture
  • HR Managers describing training needs for employees in agriculture
  • Managers in irrigation or hydroponic describing working places (job descriptions) in agriculture
  • HR Managers measuring their employees (competence gap analysis) in agriculture
  • VET providers describing their training solutions in agriculture
