The aim of the AgROBOfood project is to build a European ecosystem for the effective adoption of robotics technologies in the agri-food sector to make the agri-food sector more efficient and competitive. At the core of this EU-funded project lie innovation experiments which are organised and monitored by Digital Innovation Hubs.
The Digital Innovation Hub network supports companies in digitalisation by bringing together various stakeholders from robotics, agriculture, R&D and the business world. The network that will be expanded and strengthened during the project already includes 49 Digital Innovation Hubs and 12 Centres of Excellence.
AgROBOfood also organises open calls that aim at attracting and funding new innovation experiments and industrial challenges. A total of EUR 8 million will be allocated directly to the benefit of SMEs via the calls.
