Agricultural equipment project: questionnaire set up for manufacturers
Irstea has been commissioned to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the agricultural equipment sector and to deliver support recommendations to encourage industrial innovation and development as part of the French industrial development and agricultural ecology project. As a result, Irstea has today set up a questionnaire designed for manufacturers and suppliers within the sector.
Following the steering committee meeting held on 23 April that brought together all participants in the sector, the questionnaire is the first phase of the project and will aim to gather manufacturers opinions on :
- Innovation processes
- Recruitment and sector attractiveness
Hearings and a benchmark will complete the questionnaire. A second questionnaire will subsequently be issued to distributors. These elements will be included in a report to be published at the end of September.
