The EU Commissioner Phil Hogan is meeting with representatives from third level colleges to discuss plans to develop technology in agriculture.
Officials from the Waterford Institute of Technology and Trinity College Dublin were in Brussels today.
Olof Gill is a spokesperson for Agriculture Commissioner Phil Hogan, he says agriculture is a huge un-tapped area for technological innovators.
"We live in a highly connected, very technologically innovative world but agriculture - there hasn't been enough of an uptake in the sector yet.
"So there are lots of really good technological initiatives in the sector, apps and sensors and all that kind of stuff, robots, drones, but we have yet to witness a wider uptake in the broader farm communities," he said.
