The South Transdanubian Regional Innovation Agency, partner of the Regions 4Food Interreg Europe project, takes part in interregional experience exchange focused activities so as to make the most of new economic opportunities based on information, data and cognitive technologies and promote innovation-driven growth in Hungarian agriculture and food industry.

The Spanish WatSat Project was first introduced, which is a demonstration project that has been granted under the DIVA Call#1 with consortium members of Evenor-Tech and Tepro.
