In the last years, a better and safer use of PPPs has become a central theme in sustainable agriculture. Spraying technologies have undergone important improvement in terms of efficiency and safety, as a consequence of the latest advances in electronics, data management and safety aspects. However, a significant gap between research & industrial innovations and farmers still exists. To enhance European agriculture sustainability, it is necessary to make the latest information available for relevant agriculture stakeholders. The objective of the H2020 INNOSETA project is to set up an innovative self-sustainable thematic network on Spraying Equipment, Training and Advising (INNOSETA) to close the gap between the available novel high-end crop protection solutions and European agriculture. A thorough inventory of EU-wide research results, relevant projects on the specific thematic, innovative industry products and available training materials was carried out by the partners. A total of 251 scientific and technical papers, 135 projects, 289 industry solutions and 315 training materials were found. Results were afterwards screened by project partners by using criteria set to select concrete, technology-ready and practical innovations. At the end of the screening process 109 articles, 55 projects, 188 industry products and all training materials were selected and will serve as inputs for an ICT tool represented by an online interactive open access platform available for all stakeholders.
