The Value Added Innovation in Food Chains project (VIDA) Final Event is organised to outline and share its main contributions to the development of new and sustainable food value chains, achieved with the support of many European stakeholders who were actively collaborating in VIDA for the past three years. During this two day celebratory final event, the beneficiaries of the VIDA project will present their results in an interactive fashion. Following the event there is ample opportunity for 1:1 (virtual) matchmaking.
At the VIDA Final Event, the stakeholders will also have an opportunity to engage and learn about emerging technologies for the agri-food industry. They will also acquire more understanding of how VIDA-awarded innovation projects have addressed some of the most relevant VIDA Challenges.
In total, VIDA has supported 115 SMEs and ten international collaborations. The project granted over EUR 3.3 million for the development of 62 innovative solutions through three voucher schemes – Innovation Support Voucher (ISV/ISV Booster), Validation Voucher (VV) and Demonstration Voucher (DV). We will celebrate accomplishments and discuss the vision of the future in various structured and interactive formats, such as presentations, matchmaking, round table discussions and pitches oriented towards the commercialisation of new products, technologies and services.
