Emilia-Romagna Region:
Digital systems for agriculture

Leveraging process automation and digitalization, the management of the Region's agricultural fundings is more efficient and transparent.

Approach & Solution



For long, the Public Administration has taken the road of Digital Transformation, finding in Engineering a reliable partner for several activities, providing innovative solutions and projects.

One of the most significant examples of this collaboration is the Agriculture Information System (SIAG). It is a platform that we created for AGREA, a Regional Agency that provides fundings for the Agricultural sector of the Emilia-Romagna Region. The Information System, provides the Administration with an innovative, modular and scalable system architecture, using free and open source technologies.


SIAG allows the Region to manage the entire administrative process used for delivering EU, national and regional agriculture-related funds to farmers, from funding applications to the clearance of payments.
Thanks to a responsive, secure and accessible user interface, SIAG allows to:
  • Collect and update farms' reports
  • Collect the applications for funding and manage the related procedure up to the clearance of payments
  • Monitor data about spending and its distribution across the Region
  • Control, ex-post, EU fundings and the information contained in the farms' reports (such as territorial and livestock characteristics, production data, etc.).
