Agri-Food Smart Specialisation Platform up and running

The new Agri-Food Smart Specialisation (S3) Platform has launched an open call for expressions of interest from EU regions and Member States to propose topics for setting up and co-leading new regional partnerships on agri-food topics.

The first group of partnerships formally joined the Agri-Food S3 Platform at the kick-off event in Florence, Italy, 6-7 December 2016. The event also saw presentations of interesting pilot projects in agri-food smart specialisation, including on ‘traceability and big data’ in Andalusia (Spain) and on ‘high-tech farming’ in Tuscany (Italy).
