The S3FOOD and ‘Smart Sensors 4 Agri-food’ partners are specialists in helping agri-food SMEs with their digital transition. Meet them at ‘It’s all about data!’ on 25 to 26 November, 2021.

The INNOSUP project S3FOOD may have allocated the last grants, but European food SMEs can still benefit from expert support on their digitalisation journey. The project partners offer training and coaching services to ease the implementation of smart sensors and digital management systems.

In partnership with the Smart Sensors 4 Agri-food Partnership, EIT Food and Wagralim, S3FOOD will raise awareness of these opportunities within the agri-food value chain at the ‘It’s all about data!’ hybrid event on 25 to 26 November.


“Providing expert advice is all in a day’s work for the cluster organisations and research organisations that are part of the S3FOOD consortium and the ‘Smart Sensors 4 Agri-food’ Partnership. The event is a chance for SMEs to get inspired, connect with living labs and find a partner that can guide them onwards in their digital transition.”

Veerle De Graef, S3FOOD project coordinator

Living labs and real-life cases

Living labs will be in the spotlight on the event’s first day, which will showcase their digital capabilities and training courses alongside real-life applications of digital technology from farm to fork.

SME representatives from four of the S3FOOD-funded projects – DT-OptiDry, BBISQUIT, SAFETRACK and Smart Bakery 4.0 – will also share their experiences with new digital tools.

Veerle De Graef remarks, “The projects demonstrate the essential role of Industry 4.0 technology in ensuring a future with efficient and sustainable production of safe, high-quality foods. These are strong success stories which we hope will motivate other SMEs to explore the possibilities for their production.”

For participants who travel to the event at the Flanders Institute of Agricultural, Fisheries and Food Research (ILVO), there will be a chance to visit the living labs of ILVO or Food Pilot before joining a network reception.

Funding and matchmaking

Day 2 is open to online participants only and will be dedicated to a presentation of European funding programmes and a matchmaking session.

‘It’s all about data!’ is an open, free-of-charge event:
