This interdisciplinary forum will be analysing digitalisation in the agri-food chain, and will feature top-tier speakers from the agricultural and food sector to become a hub for sharing success stories and good practices with digitalisation as a common thread. Innovation through digitalisation improves production processes, multiplies efficiency and lowers costs, in addition to bringing a connected consumer closer. The Smart Agro Forum aims to transfer some of these leading international projects to the sector and society as a whole.
