Conclusion: During the study visit in Asturias, participants were able to see in detail the major regional LL avalaible for the Food 4.0 transition, with their corresponding infrastructure, technical specialization and previous related projects. Also, multiple live demonstrations of digital applications, focusing on Food or potentially transferred to the sector, were made allowing participants to “feel” in a practical way the capacities and benefits of this IT solutions for the Food companies. Interestengly, we were able to visit 3 LL with a different perspective (one IT, other industrial, and finally one just focused in Food processing, the target sector for Connsensys) that also brought to the activity different views, strategies and approaches to deal with Digital Transformation. The main aim of the activity from a SME perspective was to digest all this information, examples shared and provide them inspiration, new knowledge, practical examples and references to support them in the change of their industrial paradigm. But also, to show them what they could get from LL, how important is to incorporate this infrastructue in the digital journey, and which collaborative modes are more common between companies and LL. Finally, also to mention that the interactive atmosphere during the event was really great and collaborations raised from the activity.
