UTOPIA is a user-friendly software framework for smart agriculture – a farming method that has the potential of increasing the yield per square meter by means of automated agricultural machinery providing the crops with the precise treatment that they need. The aim of UTOPIA is to make smart agriculture more accessible, affordable and user-friendly.

UTOPIA is part of the ERA-NET Cofund ICT-AGRI-FOOD, with funding provided by national sources; Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, The Netherlands; Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO), Belgium; Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (Tübitak), Turkey, and co-funding by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, Grant Agreement number 862665

UTOPIA provides a contact form on their website for interested parties and (possible) stakeholders within the project scope to get in contact.

The information gathered is:

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Your message

The contact form allows people to get in contact with the UTOPIA project and its partners to retrieve information relevant to the project or to ask for an update on the progress of the project. It also allows people to provide relevant information to the project. The contact form is a means to get in contact. It is not intended as a subscription to a newsletter or to receive frequent updates and is not used to create a mailing list.

The UTOPIA project consortium is committed to protecting personal data and handling it with the utmost care in order to safeguard the privacy of those concerned.  

The UTOPIA project consortium will always strive for the shortest possible retention period of relevant data. The personal data will be discarded after project-end at the latest.

The UTOPIA project consortium will not exchange personal data with third parties. Personal data that allows for a third party to trace an individual person will only be supplied to a third party when this is required by law; when this is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with the data subject; or when the data subject has given his or her explicit, informed consent to the transfer of the data.

To get in contact about the handling of personal data you can get in contact with the Coordinator of the project I-AM Center (registered seat in Eindhoven, The Netherlands) with contact person Dennis Kooijman by sending an email to

The “General Data Protection Regulation” grants individuals rights with respect to the way their personal data is handled and protected. Individuals may, for example – depending on the legal basis for the processing of their personal data and dependent on the fulfilment of certain conditions – exercise a right to:

  • Inquire as to what personal data is processed and, when the data is provided to the project by a third party, inquire into the source of this information.
  • Request the correction of data insofar as it is incorrect.
  • Object to the processing of his or her data.
  • Know of the existence of possible automated decision making processes, and, when these are used to create profiles, inquire into the logic underlying these processes, the purposes they serve, and their consequences.
  • ‘Be forgotten’ by an institution that has processed their personal data.
