New SmartAgriHubs Open Calls

The SmartAgriHubs team is proud to announce the launch of the new Open Call PREPARE! This new Open Call will complete the two previous ones: RESTART and EXPAND, and it will have the same strategic goal: supporting the development of new Innovation Experiments.


The PREPARE Open Call targets DIHs with an idea for Innovation Experiment but in need for help and support to prepare their proposal. The DIH or the consortia could receive up to €20.000 in lump-sum and the total budget of the Open Call is of €1.2million!  


Therefore, after being successful to the Open Call PREPARE, the DIHs would also be able to apply to the Open Call EXPAND, which aims at supporting the DIHs in running their Innovation Experiments. 

We recommend you to watch our webinar with Harald Sundmaeker, he got you cover with all the details!

FOODIE SmartAgrihub 

Social space for smart farming


The purpose of AgriHub is to design and develop an intelligent agricultural innovation center – the digital innovation hub. The platform is designed to create links between people, companies, researchers and other entities with the knowledge and technology that will help realize innovative projects and ideas. 
 
One of the principles is to connect common users with developers and researchers - creating a community portal. The second principle is the integration of demo applications where users, developers and researchers will have the opportunity to collaborate, build and test different solutions. For this purpose, a development and testing environment is prepared. Such created experiments will be presented to other users. 
 
We are currently preparing and installing our Digital Innovation Hub solution for two new partners.  
The first one is the Polirural Digital Innovation Hub which will provide four distinctive sections, or spaces, that cater for both internal and external users. These sections include an interaction space with forums, dialogue and Wiki capabilities to support stakeholder interaction. Second, it provides a learning space for Massive Open Online Courses to facilitate dissemination and uptake of knowledge and methodology developed through the project. Next to that, it includes an experimentation space for testing analytics and visualization including text mining and system dynamics based on real data. It also provides a development and hosting space for creating virtual instances of the shared reference to be used by each pilot when developing their applications. 
 
Our second solution is the Smart Afri Hub Digital Innovation Hub which will be the main Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for interactive knowledge sharing and will host all results generated by the project. The Innovation Hub will act as a gateway for activities, creating innovative tools aimed at making rural areas and professions more attractive. 
 
We have already prepared a series of webinars for both Digital Innovation Hubs where the smartagrihub.eu project is also promoted.
