The SmartAgriHubs Open Call for proposals has as a key objective to expand the existing SmartAgriHubs community network with additional stakeholders and promoting the realisation of new innovation experiments.
The current COVID-19 crisis and its impact on the agri-food economy has pushed the SmartAgriHubs team to redesign the Open Call approach to give response to the needs of the sector in these critical times. In accordance to the current COVID-19 related situation and the importance of the food system’s resilience, it is foreseen to use a maximum of 900,000€ funding for two individual open calls as an immediate RESPOND to the crisis.
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.
The RESPOND Open Call is open between the 12th of May and 3rd of June 2020.
