IFOAM EU participates to new project that aims at accelerating the digital transformation of the European food and farming sector
1 November 2018 marked the start of the SmartAgriHubs project. This project aims to enable a broad digital transformation of the European agri-food sector by building an extensive pan-European network of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs).
More than 2 million farms throughout Europe are expected to be involved through 4,000 experiments, bringing the process of digitization closer to the specific needs of the farmers. Through this project IFOAM EU aims to showcase digital innovations in organic farming as well as get inspired from the other partners of the project.
The project has the potential to be a real game changer in the adoption of digital solutions by the farming sector and the organic sector wants to be part of this change.
The project has a budget of 20 million EUR and is co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 727987.
