Business Opportunities through Advanced Digital Technologies
The DIGITEC conference "Business Opportunities through Advanced Digital Technologies" took place on 15 March in the framework of the project and was a great success. It was attended by the different members of the partnership, SMEs from strategic sectors, such as the agri-food sector, and ICT SMEs.
The conference gave an opportunity for the exchange of ideas or matchmaking, as well as the possibility of brokerage between the attendees. In the same way, there were different presentations for the transmission of knowledge on the digitisation of the agri-food sector, the work of the DIGITEC project and the open innovation tool, the Marketplace. In addition, a round table was held with the participation of companies from Castilla y León, representing the supply and demand of advanced technological solutions for the agro-industrial sector.
The main objectives of the conference were to promote interregional collaboration in the field of advanced digital technologies, with the main stakeholders in the areas comprehended by the project (Castilla y León and central Portugal), and to publicise successful cases of implementation of advanced digital technologies in the agri-food industry, as well as to disseminate the main results of the project, among which the open innovation tool, called the Marketplace platform, stands out.
