- Pitch Your Robot – 2023
Unlocking the Power of Robotics is the evolution of “From Vision to Action”, where the robotic-centric innovation communities get together and explore the latest technology advancements in agri-food robotics.
At the intersection of technology, agriculture, food production, sustainability and innovation agROBOfood’s network event "Unlocking the Power of Robotics in Agri-Food" taking place this May, focuses on how robotics and digitalisation can shape the future and empower the actors of the value chain. Join us for a comprehensive, multilayered discussion around state of the art innovations and discover how robots can help us create the future we want.
The agROBOfood network is a European initiative that aims to create a sustainable ecosystem for the adoption of robotic technologies in the agri-food sector. The project is funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 program and comprises over 40 partners from across Europe.
The use of robotics in the agricultural industry has increased in recent years, with farmers and producers turning to automation to optimise production, reduce labor costs, and improve efficiency. However, there are still many challenges to overcome in order to fully unlock the potential of robotics in the sector. This is where agROBOfood comes in - to create a network of experts and stakeholders who can work together to address these challenges and drive innovation in the agri-food industry.

The vision of agROBOfood is to create a sustainable and innovative ecosystem that fosters the adoption of robotic technologies in the agri-food sector. This ecosystem will be built around the needs of farmers, producers, and other stakeholders in the industry, and will include a range of support services such as training, consulting, and funding opportunities.
The ultimate goal is to increase the competitiveness and sustainability of the European agri-food sector, while also meeting the growing demand for high-quality, safe, and sustainable food. By working together, the agROBOfood network hopes to accelerate the adoption of robotic technologies in the sector, and to create new opportunities for innovation and growth.

Designed to be manageable and not overwhelming, allowing our participants to easily follow and understand it without getting demotivated by complexity or length, the agROBOfood Network Event will be held on the 11th and 12th of May 2023 in Athens, Greece. The event will bring together experts from across Europe to discuss the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities in the field of robotics in the agri-food sector.
The agenda for the event will include a range of sessions, including industry-led perspectives, success stories from technology providers (SMEs), insights from early adopters, and invaluable input from policymakers. There will also be opportunities for networking and collaboration, as well as hands-on demonstrations of the latest robotic technologies and a poster exposition will run parallel to the event presenting the innovation experiments developed in the project.
Stay tuned for the official agenda of the event.
The agROBOfood Network Event will be held in the beautiful city of Athens, Greece. The venue for the event is the Agricultural University of Athens, located in the heart of the city, close to the main tourist attractions and with easy access to public transportation.
The Agricultural University of Athens is the third oldest university in Greece. Since 1920, it has made contributions to Greek agricultural and economic development, by conducting basic and applied research in Agricultural Science and Technology. The university is situated in the neighborhood of Votanikos, on a 25-hectare green campus that straddles both sides of the historic Iera Odos (the Sacred Way of antiquity), close to the Acropolis, at the heart of the ancient Olive Grove.
Athens is known for its rich history, stunning architecture, and vibrant culture, making it the perfect location for this networking event.
The agROBOfood Network Event is an exciting opportunity to learn about the latest trends and innovations in the field of robotics. The event is open to anyone with an interest in the agri-food sector, including farmers, producers, technology providers, policymakers, and researchers.
By attending the event, participants will have the opportunity to network with peers, gain new insights and perspectives, and contribute to the development of a sustainable and innovative ecosystem for the widespread adoption of robotic technologies in Europe. policymakers, and researchers.
We invite you to join us in this journey of reimagining and reinventing the world of agri-food and touch upon the ideas and concepts that have the potential to change the agricultural landscape as we know it. 🤖 Online registration for the agROBOfood Network Event is now open! policymakers, and researchers.
