SmartAgriHubs launched its Innovation Portal, which connects AgriTech stakeholders across Europe.
The goal of the SmartAgriHubs Innovation Portal is to expand and better connect the network of key AgriTech stakeholders across Europe.
To that end, it serves a multifaceted purpose, says SmartAgriHubs: it is a search engine, a one-stop-shop marketplace, a library, a training platform, a calendar, a network, discussion forum and matchmaking service.

The Innovation Portal was developed by taking on board the needs of both the internal and external stakeholders of the SmartAgriHubs project.
With a few clicks and search queries, a user can look for desired Competence Centres, SMEs, Digital Innovation Hubs, documents or trainings tackling a specific problem, presenting a particular solution, and within a distinct sector or geographical region.
The Innovation Portal can for instance be used by farmers who are looking for a digital solution for their farm, or someone who’s part of a project creating a digital solution to the market and is looking for organisations to help with technical or business advice. It’s also meant for stakeholders interested in learning more about digital technology and engaging in discussion.
SmartAgriHubs is a € 20 M EU project under the Horizon 2020 instrument and brings together a consortium of well over 164 partners in the European agri-food sector. The project aims to realise the digitisation of European agriculture.
