This paper summarises the early stages of the Smart AKIS project which aims to collect and disseminate Smart Farming Technologies (SFT) in line with farmers' needs. The methodology of collecting information and opinions from over 270 farmers from seven countries about SFTs is given. The methodology of collecting and analyzing the results of 718 scientific articles and 201 research projects
to determine what the research topics and results are also outlined. Further information about the 164 SFT products that had been submitted by mid-January 2017 and entered into the inventory database are also summarized. There is outline information on how to submit research and product information to the inventory database on an on-going basis so that it can be promoted to end users (farmers, farming-advisors and contractors) and also seen by potential funders and collaborators for further product development and research collaboration which is also an objective of the Innovation Workshops which are starting in February 2017 around the seven countries.
