The Sen4CAP project aims to provide European and national stakeholders of the Common Agricultural Policy with validated algorithms, products, workflows and best practices for agricultural monitoring and management.

In his lecture Mr. Benjamin Kroll will explain why his team decided to use Sen4CAP and how they integrated this product into their infrastructure. He will explain why his team operates the system at CROEDIAS or CODE-DE and which instances were set up for it.

The management and control of payments from the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund (EAGF) to farmers in their countries is the responsibility of the Member States of the European Union, according to the principle of so-called "shared management". Since a large part of the EU budget is spent on this fund, it is important to ensure that the income support provided by the EU Member States is channelled to the right farmers. The most important building block of the system for managing payments is the integrated administration and control system InVeKoS.
