Description

AgroDigiRise, building on the existing AgroHub.BG, will be the EDIH of the South Central region (SCR) of Bulgaria. The main objective of the project is to support the region – SMEs and the agri-food sector in particular - in its digital and green transformation by providing an integrated portfolio of services, targeting the needs identified. The project aims at developing the potential of the agri-food sector, SMEs and public sector from the SCR by providing an access to technical facilities and various services that will support their digital transformation by:  Development of a dynamic and sustainable innovative ecosystem and accelerating the interaction between key factors - mutual learning and cooperation, cross-sector collaboration, awareness raising and networking on a regional, national and EU level;  Providing access to innovative facilities and test before invest services – establishing and expanding a network of demo points with focus on precision farming, access to technical expertise and data;  Enhancing the competences and capabilities of SMEs and agri-food sector via trainings for digital skills acquisition - development of digital competencies of farmers, SMEs and public administration via tailor-made training programmes;  Support of the digital and business transformation with consultancy and financial advice services – development of digital maturity in the agricultural sector via technological audits, assessments, consultation processes, digitalization and business plans, market analyses, etc. By connecting previously fragmented ecosystems of different digital solution providers and the end-users, to academia and public sector, the project will support the competitiveness and green transition of the SCR, attracting serious interest in innovations and incorporating them into practice. This will stimulate the economic potential not only in the region, but within the country and the EU, as digital solutions will be broadly multiplied.
