The SmartAgriHubs Innovation Portal is growing: results so far and ongoing development

In the previous SAH newsletter we’ve announced the launch of the SmartAgriHubs Innovation Portal. Since the launch of this Portal in the beginning of September our online community has been growing rapidly. By now, the online community consists of over 230 organisations and more than 580 individual users, with new users joining on a daily basis!

Innovation Portal development update

With the network map, library, training section, calendar and forum all fully functional, the Innovation Portal already has a lot to offer for SmartAgriHubs stakeholders. Also, we are still working hard on improving existing features and developing new features. Since the launch of the portal the following improvements have been implemented:  

On the recently added ‘’Latest’’ page all Innovation Portal members can see the latest developments in our online community. From new calendar events to library uploads, and from newly registered organisations to new forum threads: you will find shortcuts to all recent activity on the ‘’Latest’’ page.

SAH entities can now upload their organisation’s logo to their logo profile. This makes it easier to quickly find the organisation you are looking for on the network map.

The network map now shows organisational relations. Thus, you can now for example see which organisations take part in a specific DIH through the DIH’s profile. For relations between organisations to be established, the member of a DIH/RC/FIE will need to send a partnership request. The main user of the DIH/RC/FIE will then have to approve this request. So, when you are the main contact for an organisation, please check your profile for ‘new’ partnership requests regularly.

Recently a help section has been launched. Here you can find more information on how to use the Innovation Portal. For example, the help sections offers step-by-step guides on how to create a user account and how to create an organisation profile. You can also find more information on the different sections and features that the Innovation Portal has to offer, such as the library, the calendar, and the forum. This section will be further expanded in the future.

Next to these features we are working on a lot more functionalities, such as a matchmaking tool and an in-depth Competence Centre categorisation system. We will keep you updated on the progress.
