WEBINAR | Governance for Digital Innovation Hubs

From 14:00 to 15:00
Location: GoToMeeting, Online

SmartAgriHubs webinar:
Governance for Digital Innovation Hubs

21 April 2020 | 14.00 CET

EBN, partnering in SmartAgriHubs projet, is glad to present this webinar with the aim to help Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) in the agri-food sector to identify the key elements they need to consider when setting up their governance.


Digital Innovation Hubs are a key driving force supporting the digital transformation of the agri-food sector. DIHs offer a one-stop-shop for the farming and (agri) business communities.

  • How can DIHs organise their operations?
  • How should they involve stakeholders in this process to generate maximum value in the agri-food sector?
  • Who decides on programmes and priorities that the DIHs follow?

These are all questions relating to DIH governance and will be all tackled at the webinar.

Govert Gijsbers will discuss these questions in the webinar.

Dr Govert Gijsbers specialises in research and innovation policy, with a focus on foresight, monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment, applied in projects to specific sectors and technologies. His ongoing and recent activities include projects on innovation in manufacturing (‘smart industry’), biotechnology, and agri-food. Another subject area relates to the impact of technology on employment, labour markets, skills and jobs. He was leading a major European project on digital innovation for manufacturing SMEs as part of the EU I4MS initiative. Govert joined TNO in 2004 and is presently working as senior researcher and advisor at the TNO Strategy and Policy Group.
