The working session will  place on 12 December, and will help shape the prioritary areas of activity and set a basic working structure among all stakeholders

The Digital Innovation Hub for the Galician Agrifood Sector launched by Gradiant and the University of Santiago de Compostela’s Campus Terra will hold its first working session on 12 December at the CiTIUS building in Santiago de Compostela. The goal of the meeting is to agree on a basic working structure allowing the st up and development of the Hub.

Different stakeholders including producers, cooperatives, professional associations, companies, industrial clusters, technology centers and universities taking part in the event will have the chance of evaluating the results of the initial poll that has helped identify the priorities, expectations and goals for the Hub.

The Hub gathers, on the demand side, stakeholders from the private agrifood sector with open and genuine interests in taking up innovative technologies and services that are adapted to their production activities. On the supply side, the Hub gathers a wide pool of technology and service providers, as well as knowledge centers where technology innovation is bred. The Hub has received the backing from the Galician regional administration, including the Regional Ministry for Rural Affairs as well as the Galician Innovation Agency, among others. The Hub will establish a fruitful and dynamic arena for open exchange and agile cooperation that will result in multiple benefits for the different stakeholders: more competitiveness for the agrifood sector, more business opportunities and export potential for technology and service providers, as well as opportunities of turning knowledge into economic and social value for Galician research and innovation centers.
