Abstract: Innovation is at the centre of the EU's growth strategy for the coming decade (EU2020). New technologies and their adoption by EU farmers are essential in maintaining European agriculture competitive in a global world. Nanotechnology represents an innovative technology in many areas of applications and is showing a great potential in the agricultural sector, in particular for the development of more precise and effective methods for disease diagnosis and treatment in crop plants. The Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) of the European Commission's Joint Research centre (JRC) organised an International Workshop on "Nanotechnology for the agricultural sector: from research to the field" in Seville on 21st and 22nd November 2013. The purpose of the workshop was to review the state-of-the-art of R&D of nanotechnology for the agricultural sector and to analyse possible markets and commercial pipeline of products with applications in crop production. This workshop brought together leading scientists, key stakeholders and experts, in order to promote the presentation of research and industry results and the discussion of experiences.
