About“From Vision to Action: Robotic Innovations in Agri-Food sector” is almost here!
This hybrid AgTech event is taking place, between 6 and 8 April 2022, in Wageningen & online.
It's Key Objectives?Boost knowledge flows across the value chain (DIHs, CC, SMEs, startups and investors).
Promote the role of DIHs (one-stop-shops) in serving companies within their local region to digitalise their businesses.
Create new networking and matchmaking possibilities.
Offer practical insights to help European farmers and rural communities meet current & future challenges.
Background InformationPopulation growth & resource degradation has increased the need to use robots in the agri-food industry.
However, since funding alone is not enough to bridge the gap between supply and demand, there has to be a new approach.
This includes the creation of an inclusive, dynamic and open ecosystem.
In this context, agROBOfood fosters this dynamic ecosystem and ensures that various dimensions (technical, human, financial) are taken into account for the implementation of digitisation processes.
Thus, the worlds of Robotics and Agriculture can come closer and pave the way to a sustainable future.
Moreover, through this sustainable and thriving ecosystem, the return of EU investment in agri-robotics will be maximized.
How is this possible?In essence, agROBOfood ensures that Europe will become more competitive. In turn, competitiveness can boost the provision of adequate high-quality food for European citizens.
The goals of this project will be achieved by:
1. Raising awareness,
2. Facilitating involvement in Innovation Experiments (IE) and
3. Enabling the actual adoption of solutions by end-users.
The successful implementation of these steps prerequires the agROBOfood ECOSYSTEM; a framework that ensures opportunities for diversified innovation, locally-applicable knowledge and collaboration initiatives.
Event ProgrammeWith 12 parallel hybrid sessions and a unique pitching online event Pitch your Robot, Find your Investor , this 360o event provides an opportunity for multiple stakeholders across the AgTech value chain to share experiences, exchange best practices and discuss the future developments. Among them will be Digital Innovation Hubs, Research and Technology Centres, Academia, Big Industry Leaders, SMEs and Startups. Through panel discussions, workshops and keynote speeches, the event will offer the participant not only a vision of what is possible, but a glimpse of its actual implementation.
Come and join us in this event, in order to connect, network, participate in workshops & share your vision on the future of agriculture robotics.
