SMARTCHAIN links scientists with theoretical and methodological expertise with practitioners and stakeholders knowledgeable about the short food supply chain sector.
To strengthen co-creation and collaboration between partners and ensure double-directional flow of information between research and practice within the SMARTCHAIN consortium, 9 Innovation and Collaboration Hubs will be established from the very beginning of the project in France (HUB Manager: ACTIA), Germany (UHOH), Greece (UOC), Hungary (KIS), Italy (UNIBO), Netherlands (AMP), Serbia (UOB), Spain (AZTI) and Switzerland (WBF). The establishment of the national innovation hubs will lead to a permanent association of stakeholders at national level, working on the improvement of short food supply efficiency for the economic growth of the sector for the benefits of European farmers and citizens.
