Connecting the dots to unleash the innovation potential for digital transformation of the European agri-food sector

SmartAgriHubs will enhance a broad Digital Transformation in the European agri-food sector

Despite the overwhelming interest of tech companies, investors, policymakers, the adoption rate of Digital Agriculture is still limited. In most EU member states only a small percentage of farmers make use of the digital agriculture technology that is available today. Most farmers do not yet adopt digital technologies or only invests in proven and tangible technologies such as auto-steering tractors or milking robots. The current impact of digitization is way below its true potential. Main reasons for this are the current fragmentation of knowledge and technology expertise in the proximity of farms, the lack of promising business cases for farmers and business models for the technology providers. There is also fragmentation and misalignment between the various types of public and private funding.

Objectives

SmartAgriHubs wants to break down those road blocks that hold back the digitalisation of the agricultural sector. SAH will build-up a pan-European network of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) fostering a broad digital transformation in the agri-food domain. SAH will leverage, strengthen and connect local DIHs, connected with Competence Centres (CCs). This ecosystem combines the various expertise that is needed to unleash the potential of digital solutions and realise a digital transformation of the agricultural sector in Europe. SAH will consolidate and foster a European-wide network of Digital Innovation Hubs for Agriculture to enhance the Digital Transformation for Sustainable Farming and Food Production.
