Agriculture has to cope with the triple issue, ie being competitive, preserving the environment and offering correct living conditions to farmers. Digital technologies, eg satellite images, smartphones, connected objects, Internet of Things, big data, modelling, simulation, High-Performance Computing may help to face the challenge... However, innovation in digital agriculture is not straightforward: technology adoption is an issue and the way they can revolutionize the global value chain is not known.  

#DigitAg, the “Digital Agriculture Convergence Laboratory”, has been created in 2017 in Montpellier with the ambition to address these questions, by putting together a substantial interdisciplinary taskforce of about 300 researchers from 30 laboratories in Montpellier, Toulouse and Rennes (France). It carries out research, higher education and innovation to support the development of digital agriculture and related digital economy in France and in the Southern countries. Interdisciplinary research deals with disciplines  crossing biological, agricultural, digital, economic and social sciences. #DigitAg gathers 17 partners, both public (INRA, INRIA, IRSTEA, CIRAD, Montpellier University, Montpellier Supagro, AgroParisTech Montpellier, ACTA, SATT AxLR) and private (IDATE, Smag, Vivelys, Pera-Pellenc, Agriscope, Fruition Science, ITK, Terranis). It is financially supported during 7 years by the National Research Agency, with a prisionnal funding of 9,9 M€. 

#DigitAg supports a dozen of PhD grants every year, from blue sky research to applied research, as well as around 25 grants for master internships per year, 2/3 of them in research lab., and one third in companies. The internship is around 530 €/ month. Some labs can also support travel tickets (see with the contact). #DigitAg has also the ambition to host foreign students (PhD and post-docs) and researchers with dedicated calls for mobility.
