VIDA (Value-added Innovation in fooD chAins) is an EU InnoSup project that will nurture and harness the growth and innovation potential of SMEs working across European food chains. VIDA will drive Europe’s global competitiveness and economic development by bringing together a food-energy-water nexus in food chains.
Speakers are the VIDA Beneficiaries: Beatriz García (ADIEGO Hermanos), Hans Wouters (Brightwork) and Anders Thomsen (Nordicflexhouse).
VIDA – Value added Innovation in fooD chAins aims to accelerate the implementation of new solutions in the food sector which improve the usage of water and energy with the ambition to reduce losses and consumption. VIDA has three different funding schemes to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) seeking new resource efficient solutions. VIDA has already awarded 1.5 million Euro in innovation projects by SMEs.
To enhance matchmaking between SMEs from different sectors and territories, ten networking and business brokerage virtual events will be organized by VIDA. The objective of these events is to present VIDA Demonstration Voucher Scheme and to showcase SMEs solutions in a pitch-style; to present their approach in how to tackle VIDA challenges and to support the creation of consortia for Demonstration Vouchers (that requires the collaboration of +2 SMEs).
VIDA 7th webinar will take place in September 3rd 2019 10.00 – 11.00 CET with the objective to present the VIDA VoDemonstrationucher Second Call. Moreover there will be three presentations by SMEs that have been awarded in the First Call of VIDA Demonstration Voucher:
