On the 23th of July 2019 an information day took place at the coffee shop ‘KENTROIKON’ located in Mandria Village. The main aim was to present the main idea of the SWSOIP project and inform the farmers about the emerging opportunity of receiving information related to the water needs of their crops which will be extracted using the freely available Sentinels and Landsat satellite data. Furthermore, the capabilities of the main outcomes of the SWSOIP project were presented including 1) the reception of notifications through the smart water application indicating water needs of the specific crop in the specific field on a daily basis and 2) the use of the smart watering valve in this pilot phase of the project. These capabilities could be tested and used at this pilot phase by selected frontiers farmers who are interested to registered and participate during the implementation of the SWSOIP project and collaborate with the consortium. Finally, after the presentation by Prof. Hadjimitsis, Dr Papadavid and Dr Papoutsa a discussion with the farmers was followed and questionnaires were disseminated aiming to collect input that will be used to identify and better understand the Users’ Requirements.
