Digitalisation and New Technologies in Agri-food
Digitalisation and New Technologies in Agri-food event is co-organised by JRC and Junta de Andalusia. The focus of the meeting will be on exploring synergies between Digital Innovation Hubs and Agri-food Partnerships.
The objective of the first day is to showcase activities related to exploration, exploitation and deployment of digital services and technologies in agri-food. How important new technologies are and how private and public actors go about their mapping and use? Focus will be also on specific technologies (not yet) used, market needs and matching demand with offer. Significant space will be given to companies that will pitch successful uptake of technologies by agri-food sector, possible technological solutions for agri-food or promising new emerging technologies for agri-food.
The second day will focus on Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs). Between three and five Digital Innovation Hubs will present their overall and specific strategies and activities addressed to help the digitisation of agri-food industries and businesses in their own regions and beyond borders. The DIHs presentations will be followed by roundtable discussions on challenges related to agri-food digitisation.
In addition, a B2B event will be organised by the Andalusian branch of the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN). Short pre-scheduled meetings will take place simultaneously to the main event. In the afternoon of the second day field trip(s) are organised. B2B aims at the companies (SMEs, large companies, start-ups,...), entrepreneurs, research organisations and public administrations active in research and technology on the following areas:
