In order to fulfil task 3.1 of WP 3, the Department of Agricultural Engineering was selected as the ideal place for the establishment of a Smart Agroecosystem based Resilience Centre (SAR Centre) and an initial floor plan for the establishment of SAR centre has been developed. The equipment purchasing procedure for the SAR centre under seven categories, is in progress. The virtual education center with a web-based system has been developed to provide teaching materials, learning materials, evaluation procedures, assignments and other required materials to complete the courses.

Formation of an interface platform with stakeholders and Universities through SARC, under 3.2 of WP 03, has been initiated by developing an inventory from identified industries (build industry-university partnerships).
