Linking Associated Candidate Countries and EU Member States food sectors with a view to higher level of participation in the FP 6 projects

Objective

The aim of the FOODLINK project is to promote among the researchers and industry operating in the ACC food sector the participation in the EU 6th Framework Programme research and development projects. ACC institutions active in a field of food industry are not sufficiently experienced in coordinating such projects as well as cooperating with leading institution in the EU.

They are also not enough informed of the results and achievements of previous EU projects and other ACC successes in a food sector. In order to improve the present situation the series of information days in different ACC will be organized. Each partner will conduct one info-day and will carry out the action of potential partners profiles collection.

During these info-days the researchers, enterprises, including SMEs representing the food sector will familiarize themselves with the results of EU and research projects and with current issues of research and industry in ACC and with the FP6 participating opportunities. There will be a possibility to discuss how to rise the number of projects with ACC partners in the light of the EU enlargement and to contact with potential partners.

In addition, a final brokerage event will be organized on the basis of previously collected profiles of ACC organizations interested in FP6 participation. Thanks to this event a partner search for FP6 collaboration will be facilitate (matches and initial contacts). Through its 18 months duration, FOODLINK will provide leaflets on each info-day (also in ACC languages) and a final brokerage event catalogue containing potential partners profiles.

Moreover, the specific website will be created as well as database of ACC institutions (research and SMEs) active in food sector which will be a basis for future collaboration partner search. The dissemination of FOODLINK results (database, catalogue, website) will create a platform for encouraging ACC institutions to participate in EU Framework Programmes.
