The Malaga City Council, through the National Digital Content Pole, organizes the 'Ideatón Agrotech', an open innovation event focused on addressing the challenges of the agricultural sector.

Within this project, the Pole has a budget of 91.344,79 euros to carry out actions within the 2023-2025 framework aimed at providing resources for innovation in agri-food companies with the aim of accompanying them and accelerating their digital transformation. The program is co-financed 50% by the European Commission through the Digital Europe program and the other 50% by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development of the Junta de Andalucía

The 'Ideatón' is the third event organized by the Polo within the DIH Agrotech project, which in 2023 already held a Hackathon at the Tabacalera facilities, and the conference "Technological Challenges in the Agricultural Environment" together with the La Noria social innovation center of the Provincial Council of Malaga. Precisely next to La Noria, the National Digital Content Pole organizes the event “Digital Transformation in the Agricultural Sector” on May 23.
