VIDA – Value-added Innovation in fooD chAins aims to drive Europe’s global competitiveness and economic development by bringing together a food-energy-water nexus in food chains through VIDA Voucher Scheme. Food production and processing crucially depend on energy and water, which provide the necessary inputs, as well as Key Enabling Technologies (KETs), to process raw materials into marketable products. VIDA’s main objective is to support optimisation and resource efficiency in food value chains through innovation.

VIDA international Brokerage Event 2019 will promote matchmaking among SMEs interested in VIDA vouchers and EU funding (i.e. other types of voucher schemes and cascading funding through Horizon Europe Programme) and will enhance good practices and hints for having successful innovative projects. Some companies will present resource efficiency challenges and solution in the agri-food sector, both as end-users and technology suppliers.

Therefore, VIDA invites all interested SMEs to register and submit their contributions for the Pitch Session ‘Challenges and solutions for a sustainable and competitive European food value chain’ not later than September 3rd by filling in the Expression of Interest form and sending it to the email:
