Study Visits Time
The third release of the Regions 4Food newsletter is entirely dedicated to the project Study Visits partners have been attending since May and that will end in 2020.
During the last six months we have been working hard to exchange within our consortium the best our territories have to offer in terms of policies, actions, initiatives developed to encourage and facilitate digital transformation in the agrifood sector.
Our aim is to improve single regions' public policies and, in turn, to make it easier for all the actors working along the Agrifood value chain to adopt digital technologies. This would definitely help them, form the biggest one to the smallest farm, making their productive processes more efficient and sustainable.
