Digital innovation for a more sustainable and resilient food industry

Rising energy prices, a growing labour shortage and a pressing need to secure a safe, sustainable and affordable food supply – food manufacturers face more challenges today than ever. Digital innovation is in this perspective part of the solution! Join us on September 7th 2022 for a celebration of S3FOOD results and insights. Discover how smart sensors and data management systems, funded by the S3FOOD project, are already making an impact. And take part in the discussion on how to continue driving the digital transformation of European food SMEs.

A bitesize approach creating a true quantum leap - impact of the S3FOOD project

Over the past three years, the S3FOOD consortium has merged the needs and challenges of the food processing industry with the solutions provided by the technology and digital solution providers, thus enabling the digital innovation and transition of the food processing industry.

  • 500+ EU food SMEs and digital technology providers have benefited from our support services and events
  • 75 SMEs have received direct funding for their digital innovation projects

Each individual project was a small step on the pathway to a digital food processing industry, but together they created a true digital wave.

What's next?

Discover how the S3 partnership ' Smart Sensors 4 Agri-Food' enables the digital transformation of the European Agri-Food sector, new projects with new opportunities for SMEs and how we connect to other networks and initiatives.

A chance to meet and exchange ideas

Look forward to a full day in the company of fellow food industry professionals. You’ll meet representatives from the funded SMEs, the involved cluster organisations and living labs that support the digital transformation of the European food industry and more. A great opportunity to meet and exchange your ideas about the digital future of the food industry.


The S3FOOD final event will take place at the Hilton Grand Place hotel in Brussels. Attendance to the event is free, but registration is mandatory.
