A VALUE Crossroad (VACRO) event focusing on biotechnological applications in the agro-food sector will take place at the Hellenic VALUE Relay Centre, Athens, on 13-14 April 1994.

VACRO Days are an initiative of the European Commission in the framework of the VALUE programme. They bring practical results from selected EU research and technological development projects into an arena where they may be assessed and discussed by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with a view to attracting interest in the commercial applications of these results.

At the two-day Athens event, a number of results from the agro-food sector will be demonstrated to members of industry most likely to be interested in their applications. Individual meetings are arranged between the developers and potential clients with a view to discussing possible exploitation agreements. The presentations will concern the following areas:

- Marginal lands;
- Soil improvement;
- Biological pest control;
- Seeds and plant tissue culture;
- Wine;
- Milk and dairy products;
- Food technology, food quality;
- Other areas.

Bilateral meetings between researchers and representatives from industry will be arranged to take place during the event. In addition, there will be opportunity for questions and discussion.
