« The idea behind FIRA is not merely to introduce our robots to the international community, the event is designed to allow key players in the field of agricultural robotics to meet up and work together on innovative ideas», explains Gaëtan Séverac, Naïo Technologies’ COO. «There are quite a number of events and scientific conferences on agricultural innovation but we couldn’t find a professional and industrial event that was dedicated to agricultural robotics in particular », adds Aymeric Barthes, the company’s CEO.

FIRA addresses the need to understand and anticipate the challenges of the agribot sector. Farmers, industrial players, researchers, advisors, journalists… the agribot sector appeals to all and everyone’s always eager to learn more! FIRA 2016 addresses the 3 following themes:
