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 (SME) seeking new resource efficient solutions.
Besides, ten networking and business brokerage virtual events will be organised by VIDA. The objectives of these events are to showcase SME 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 SME’s). Each Webinar will be addressing one of the VIDA Agrofood sector and their challenges (Farming, Breweries, Wineries, Meat industry, fisheries, soy/milk industry, sugar processing industry, among others).
The second VIDA Webinar (January 15th, from 10.00-11.00) will tackle the breweries and wineries challenges on resource efficiency. It will be hosted by Nanoprogress (Czech Republic) with the support of ZINNAE (Spain). During the webinar there will be a representative of the food sector that will present specific resource efficiency challenge. Besides, we offer the possibility to solution providers (SME) working in this sector to pitch themselves as potential collaborators for applying to demonstration vouchers (funding availability fro 60,000 to 250,000) as collaboration and joint proposals are mandatory in this vouchers.
