From the 9th to the 11th of March in Bucharest, Romania, the SmartAgriHubs Stakeholder Conference will celebrate the achievement of one of the largest Horizon 2020 projects dedicated to European agriculture. Wageningen Economic Research is responsible for project coordination.

From launching an Innovation Portal to establishing more profound links with and between the Digital Innovation Hubs, Competence Centers and Flagship Innovation Experiments, we have built a far-reaching yet tight ecosystem that fosters the uptake of digital innovations in European agriculture. Nonetheless, a lot of work remains to be done. Working towards creating a shift at the European level requires dedication, cooperation, diversity and innovation.

In order to keep on working towards that goal, it is essential that, throughout the project, all the partners and stakeholders are provided with opportunities to connect with one another.

Programme

Therefore, in addition to the stakeholder's event on the first day, the second and third days are dedicated to building synergy within the project and with other similar Horizon 2020 initiatives. Projects such as IoF2020DemeterNefertitiAtlasFAIRshareSmartchainDesira
