Value-added Innovation in fooD chAins

VIDA will strengthen current and develop new cross-sectoral industrial value chains
within the food production and processing industries through a combination of direct and indirect innovation actions, as well as support and capacity building measures.

These will include open-innovation and virtual collaboration tools, mentoring and
knowledge-sharing activities and a ‘twin-track’ innovation voucher scheme which will support the realisation of high-TRL, large-scale, demonstration and commercialisation projects across Europe.
