SmartAgriHubs is a €20 M EU project under the Horizon 2020 instrument and brings together a consortium of well over 164 partners in the European agri-food sector. The project aims to realise the digitisation of European agriculture by fostering an agricultural innovation ecosystem dedicated to excellence, sustainability, and success.
The SmartAgriHubs project is launching its first Open Call. The Respond Open Call is open between the 12th of May and the 3rd of June 2020.

In the light of the current COVID-19 crisis, it is essential to further stimulate the development of digital innovations which can tackle the challenges currently faced by the Agrifood sector. Considering this, SmartAgriHubs has investigated the possibilities for funding research that helps our sector in these trying times. Can digital innovation help mitigate the consequences of COVID-19? SmartAgriHubs RESPOND open call focuses on the organisation and realisation of hackathon type of activities and the proposal of immediate technological solutions that will RESPOND to the effects of the COVID-19 crisis, and use potential opportunities to fight against the pandemic.

If your parties want to participate in this open call, there are two possibilities, either for DIHs or SMEs:

• For Digital Innovation Hubs: Proposals must include at least one DIH. SmartAgriHUbs considers that proposals requesting a contribution from 10.000 to 30.000 Euros would allow to support the realities of activities appropriately.

• For Small and Medium Enterprises, including Start-ups: Proposals are submitted by SMEs/Start-ups aiming at the direct realization of digital innovations mitigating the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in the agri-food sector. SmartAgriHubs considers that proposal requesting a contribution from 30.000 to 50.000 Euros would allow to support the realization of activities appropriately.


SmartAgriHubs will realise a focused open call for hackathon type of activities that will RESTART the economy around the agri-food related sectors and affected food systems. 

The funding conditions to RESTART the Economy around Food Systems will be published in due time, as this open call is planned to be launched by July 2020.


The major amount of funding will be assigned to the implementation of programmes by DIHs to support the realisation of Innovation Experiments. This shall specifically contribute to the expansion of the network of DIHs and CCs as well as making available new knowledge and results from digital innovation activities.

The funding conditions to EXPAND the Network will be published in due time, as this open call is planned to be launched by July 2020.

Our services


We are team of experts

Individual approach

Each project has its own specific requirements that need to be analyzed and an optimal solution designed to achieve a successful goal.

Modular solutions

We build projects on a system mulching that can be easily extended with additional components and modules. This allows you to change and add functionality and behavior to the entire system.

Exact approach

When solving projects, developing SW and HW, we use methodologies that guarantee proper coordination and guidance. Ongoing analysis and evaluation eleminates the deviation to meet goals.

Know how

Years of experience and close ties to the academic beliefs of world universities determine access to the knowledge and expertise base.


We have a team of experts who are ready to advise or help with the problem.

Process management

Not only in the initial phase of the project we map out individual processes and thus the behavior of the whole proposed system. The system is described by UML into diagrams and processes.
