S3FOOD supports you in your digitalisation journey – both with the implementation of smart sensor systems and with turning your data into relevant information.
How we do it
We help you through all phases. From beginning to end.
Phase 1: See
See how industry 4.0 can work for you
Join our study visits to frontrunner companies and living labs in countries around Europe. Here, you will see with your own eyes how smart sensors can be applied and the best practices for using the resulting data and information to the benefit of your company. We’ll share more info about the study visits as we go – so stay tuned!
Phase 2: Learn
Learn from ideation sessions and one-on-one Ideation sessions will take place after the study visits. The purpose is to gather ideas, discover the challenges of participating SMEs and find out how S3FOOD can support the SMEs. SMEs will be offered one-on-one support by experts and S3FOOD partners to develop and fine-tune ideas and solutions.
Phase 3: Team up
Team up at our matchmaking events
The next step is matchmaking at two crucial international events. Participating companies will have the opportunity to present their needs and solutions and find relevant partners. To ensure the best possible attendance, participants can apply for funding to cover some or all of their travel expenses.
Phase 4: Develop
Develop your idea through targeted training
Technology training and business coaching will be available to all participating SMEs in the form of online webinars and physical training sessions. We’ll also include a web-based tool on the S3FOOD website to provide an overview of all S3FOOD services, facilities and support opportunities.
Phase 5: Get funding
Get funding to implement your project
Once you have developed and finalised your idea and project plan, each SME can apply for funding to implement it. SMEs with the best project will be awarded vouchers up to the value of 60,000 euros.
Who can apply?
Small and medium sized agri-food companies and technology providers from a country in Europe.

Connsensys The aim of the Connsensys project – Connecting smart sensor systems for the food industry – is to create a European network of interconnected and open access living labs to facilitate the implementation of intelligent sensor systems in the agri-food industry. Shared support services and demo cases will be established.
S3FOOD will build on the learnings from Connsensys and mutual benefits will be explored.
