The VIDA project aims to accelerate the implementation of new solutions (preferably key enabling technologies – KET) in the food sector which improve the usage of water and energy with the ambition to reduce losses and consumption. VIDA has three different types of funding vouchers to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) seeking new resource-efficient solutions.
VIDA is entering its final year and as we now make up the balance of the completed and ongoing projects, it is seen that not all of the available European Union’s INNOSUP funding has been used. To support as many innovative SMEs as possible, it was agreed with the Consortium and the EU Project Officer, that there will be one final call for the Innovation Support Voucher Booster (ISV Booster).
This voucher aims to support development of new products, processes or technical services (e.g. KET) in the food/energy/water nexus which – with their functions, parameters or characteristics – exceed the existing products, processes or technical services for the prospective users, and are based on the international state-of-the-art of science and technology.
