Description:

The project seeks to improve the competitiveness of agro-food cooperatives to favour economic development and cohesion in the rural areas of Southwest Europe, thus overcoming their disadvantaged situation. To achieve this objective, AGROSMARTcoop will create an intelligent space of interaction and promotion between Spanish, French and Portuguese cooperatives, equipped with advanced tools and services that meet the specific needs of these bodies. The cooperation will facilitate the implementation of new durable innovation and marketing techniques and will introduce the concept of smart marketing, which harnesses the potential of cooperatives by aligning it with innovation, science and technology.
