EU-funded Food-scalEUp project to map agri-food digital acceleration ecosystems and needs


10 partner organisations of the Horizon Europe-funded Food-scalEUp project conducted a cross analysis of their agri-food digital acceleration ecosystems in order to create a directory of key players and a portfolio of available programmes for start-up acceleration, at European level.

This is just a preliminary step for the creation of the Food-scalEUp agri-food acceleration network, a map of actors and acceleration programmes available for start-ups at regional and European level.

The directory is intended to become a tool available on the Food-scalEUp website and will be open to other acceleration and innovation ecosystems at the end of May 2023.

Identifying the needs of agri-food innovation companies

In a similar way, the Food-scalEUp project conducted a survey of about 70 European start-ups, scale-ups and SMEs. They identified a series of improvement points and recommendations.

All these profiles benefited from acceleration services in the last three years and were start-ups, scale-ups or innovative SMEs focused on agri-food and digital solutions. Based on the findings of the consulted end-users of acceleration services, they identified a set of six areas for improvement.
