The SmartAgriHubs Innovation Portal will connect you to key AgriTech stakeholders in Europe

SmartAgriHubs in a nutshell

SmartAgriHubs, a €20M EU project under the Horizon 2020 programme, brings together a consortium of 160 partners in the European agri-food sector. The project aims to realise the digitisation of European agriculture. The heart of the project is formed by 28 flagship innovation experiments (FIE) serving as benchmarks for other Innovation Experiments to strive towards. This is where technology solutions are put into practice. Flagship Innovation Experiments are conducted with the help of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) which facilitate access to the latest knowledge and expertise, and technology support provided by Competence Centres (CC).

CEMA, member of the SmartAgriHubs consortium, is dedicated to the actions within WP1 including:

  • Ecosystem building - assisting existing DIHs in all European regions to strengthen and expand their network, so that they can fulfil their mission to enable, support and develop an increasing number of Innovation Experiments.
  • Collaboration and knowledge sharing - building trust and to facilitate knowledge sharing within and between DIHs to broaden their capacities and services.
  • Communication and dissemination - organises and implements SmartAgriHubs’ communication strategy and activities to raise awareness about the project and disseminate its results
