Project description

English EN

The future of robotic agriculture today

Europe’s agri-food sector is facing a big challenge: ensuring environmentally-friendly production at lower costs and with a shortage of labourers. The solution requires high-tech modernisation of farming. Robotics can play a big role. The agROBOfood project, a consortium of 39 partners aims to accelerate the sector’s digital transformation through the adoption of robotic technologies. To boost the uptake of robotic solutions, it will establish a sustainable network of digital innovation hubs (DIHs). At the heart of the project are innovation experiments (IEs) that will be organised and monitored by the DIHs. The European robotics community will be involved throughout the project to ensure maximum synergy. This will maximise the return of investments from the digital transformation of agri-food.
