More information:



The ERA-NET ICT AGRI FOOD aims to strengthen R&D cooperation between European Union (EU) member states and associated states to promote, in a verifiable and measurable way, the use of smart digital technologies to make European agri-food systems more sustainable, resilient and secure.

The project will finance annual joint calls for transnational R&D&I projects. The funded projects will contribute to introducing and piloting digital technologies that improve the sustainability of the agri-food sector for the benefit of present and future generations.

The ERA-NETs are European consortia of R&D&I funding entities that coordinate to encourage projects of consortia of international companies. In this way, each entity finances companies in its country or region of origin. The ERA-NETs also develop strategic research agendas and establish priority lines of action in their field of action, which are passed on to the European Commission (EC) and influence the development of community policies.

The ICT AGRI FOOD project is coordinated by the German Federal Agency for Agriculture and Food and funded by the EU Horizon 2020 program.
