Descrizione The objective of this thesis is to conduct a thorough analysis of established and emerging practices and technology in the Agritech sector, with a specific focus on the Italian and European context. The research will be conducted in cooperation with a major insurance company. The key research questions are defined as follows:
- What technologies are currently available or being developed in the AgriTech field, with a specific focus on IoT devices?
- What type of sensors or data sources (e.g., open data, existing camera networks, earth observation, etc.) can be leveraged to provide insurance-related services?
- Which are the challenges and barriers to data collection in the AgriTech field?
- How are insurance companies currently leveraging IoT and related technologies to provide new services, or enhance existing ones, and in which phases of the insurance cycle?

The analysis will be conducted based on secondary sources (including both academic and non-academic sources) and, if feasible, primary sources (interviews with companies and researchers active in relevant sectors).
