TRIBIOME (Advanced tools for integration and synergistic inTeRconnectIon of microBIOMEs in resilient food systems) tiene el objetivo de transformar y hacer más resilientes los sistemas de producción de alimentos a partir del estudio de los microbiomas, empleando para ello soluciones digitales. El proyecto estará en ejecución hasta diciembre de 2026 y se ha financiado con 4.914.723,50 € a través de la convocatoria HORIZON-CL6-2022-FARM2FORK-01-09 del prestigioso programa Horizon Europe. DIH-LEAF participa en el diseño y despliegue de una herramienta para el apoyo en la toma de decisiones para garantizar la comunicación e interacción entre los actores del sector agroindustrial.

The Project “Smart and real-time evaluation of pesticide deposition in wine yards through image processing (DIG4VITIS)” has been selected by the State Research Agency (Ministry of Science and Innovation) to be funded with 120.750 € within the 2021 call for Ecological and Digital Transition Projects. The Universities of Burgos and Valladolid are involved in this project that will develop solutions to evaluate the deposition of pulverized pesticides on commercial wine yards with the use of digital technologies. Through the acquisition and processing of hyperspectral images of wine yards by means of AI methods, an array of real-time indicators will be obtained to assess the pesticide deposition.

DIH-LEAF coorganizes the Meeting “Digital Businesses for Customary Uses ” together with some of its member organizations, namely Fundación Oxígeno, Agalsa and the University of Burgos.

The Project starts in October 2022 and has been financed with close to 100.000 € within the second call of DIH-WORLD, through the prestigious European research programme Horizon 2020. DIH-LEAF offers counselling and digitalization services to the participating SME in this innovation experiment, also being involved in the specific training of DIHs that will be carried out in DIH-WORLD Project.

The Project “Smart Irrigation Tool 4.0” (HEIR 4.0) has the aim of developing an AI algorithm-based model (Machine Learning, more precisely) that together with digital tools (remote-control irrigation, cropping and ambient sensors) will allow to obtain results able to model the irrigation necessities of a number of crops that are cultivated in the Mediterranean basin.
The project is developed in the framework of the IX Proof-Concept call of the University of Burgos, within the University-Enterprise Knowledge-Transfer Plan (TCUE), cofunded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Castile y Leon Council. The proposal has been funded with 10.000 € and has started its activities in April 2022.

DIH-LEAF participates in the DIHNAMIC Project (Digital Innovation Hubs: dynamic facilitation and thrust from regional innovation agencies), coordinated by the Institute for Corporate Competitivity (ICE). This project has been funded with 496.250 €, within the H2020-INNOSUP-2018-06 call from Horizon 2020 programme.
DIH-LEAF contributes with personalized counselling and experimentation services in order to boost the digitalisation of SMEs in Castile y Leon region.

DIH-LEAF participates, as a collaborator, in the project named “The Digital Valley”. This initiative, leaded by one of the DH-LEAF members (AGALSA Local Action Group), is aimed at transforming the Sierra de la Demanda (Burgos). Its objective is building the first digital twin of a valley (Sierra de la Demanda).

In Septiembre 2021, DIH-LEAF has been recognized as fully operational by the European Comission (Platform of the Smart Specialisation Strategy - Joint Research Centre). DIH-LEAF is now a member of the group of 60 Spanish DIHs that are recognized as fully operational, included in the S3Platform DIH Catalogue.



The project Viticulture living-lab: Digital tools for a sustainable viticulture (DIG4VITIS) has been selected for funding. The proposal was submitted by DIH-LEAF, with a consortium of 10 of its member organizations, and has received 20.000 € of funding. DIG4VITIS will be developed under the PREPARE call of SmartAgriHubs, aimed at Innovation Experiments for Digital Transformation in the Agri-Food Economy. The execution deadline of the project is December, 2021.
