SmartAgriHubs connects the dots of agri-tech innovation to catalyse the digital transformation of the European agri-food sector. The project aims to realize this by fostering a self-sustaining agricultural innovation ecosystem dedicated to excellence, sustainability and success. To this end, a multi-stakeholder approach covering a wide value-chain of DIHs, CCs, FIEs and other agri-food stakeholders across all EU member states is deployed.  


Visual Identity 

The SmartAgriHubs Visual Identity gave the project its distinct corporate identity, thus allowing the project to be uniform in all its internal and external communication activities. The logo and colour scheme unites innovation, agriculture and hubs into one.


Communication Strategy 

The communication strategy is the cornerstone upon which the success of the project’s dissemination rests. It is designed to help the network and its members to communicate effectively both internally and externally and meet the objectives of the SmartAgriHubs project.
