The mission of the regional cluster (RC) Central Europe is to map actors and establish links between them in order to facilitate synergies within and beyond the region.
Their mission is to strengthen and coordinate networks of innovative actors in order to promote developments.
It is a public-private network with a strong focus on new policies in order to reinforce digitisation in the agri-food sector.
This RC’s focus lies in supporting and fostering the digital transformation of the agri-food sector, connecting all the individual players of the national and regional innovation ecosystem.
This Regional Cluster (RC) acts as a first contact point and link between farmers and technology providers in the North East Europe (NEE) region.
The Regional Cluster (RC) North West Europe is responsible for the monitoring of the region and the allocation of funding schemes to projects that might offer opportunities for leverage within the context of SmartAgriHubs (SAH).
The RC’s objective is to support and expand the network of DIHs in the SEE region.
This Regional Cluster (RC) will act as a one-stop-shop for farmers, advisors, technology providers and agri-food companies who want to avail of technology solutions from across Europe to farming as well as business problems.
SmartAgriHubs uses a Regional Cluster approach, where each regional cluster represents a group of agricultural Digital Innovation Hubs, Competence Centres and Innovation Experiments. The Regional Clusters are led by organisations that are closely related to national or regional digitisation initiatives and funds. SmartAgriHubs gathers 9 Regional Clusters spread across Europe.
Each Regional Cluster brings its own unique characteristics and expertise to bear, and thereby contributes to the SmartAgriHubs ecosystem. Within their regional scope, specific agri-food challenges are addressed with the help of the services, technology and research provided by the Digital Innovation Hubs, Competence Centres and Innovation Experiments. The role of Regional Clusters is to establish bridges between the agri-food sector and technology providers in their respective regions and thereby contribute to knowledge exchange and the establishment of a pan-European market of digital solutions for the agri-food sector. In other words, Regional Clusters help foster agri-food innovation ecosystems on a regional level, and facilitate their embedment within the wider European ecosystem.
