October 2020


The agROBOfood Digital Week took place from Monday 28/9 till Friday 2/10 with more than 80 participants attending. The online sessions had a variety of topics. Namely, the lessons learned from the first agROBOfood Open Call, the various services that the agROBOfood network offers to DIHs and SMEs, the training and education programs that are offered in the field of agrifood robotics. Moreover, the 7 Innovation Experiments presented their first results on “Soil nitrogen monitoring and mapping”, “Robotic olfactometry for detecting and controlling mycotoxins in maize fields”, “Vineyard monitoring by robots”, “Monitoring olives”, “Cucumber leaf harvest robot”, “Agricultural robot performance assessment” and “Cabbage handling and processing using collaborative robots and vision technology”.

All recordings and presentations of these sessions can be found here.

At the next event, we will focus even more on robotics and give space to best practices and showcases. Of course, we are also curious about your suggestions! Simply email them to
