Value-added Innovation in fooD chAins

Objective

Value-added Innovation in fooD chAins (VIDA) will nurture and harness the growth and innovation potential of SMEs working
across European food chains, bringing together four complementary and mutually dependant sectors; food, energy, water
and key enabling technologies (KET). VIDA will strengthen current and develop new cross-sectoral industrial value chains
within the food production and processing industries through a combination of direct and indirect innovation actions, as well
as support and capacity building measures. These will include open-innovation and virtual collaboration tools, mentoring and
knowledge-sharing activities and a 'twin-track' innovation voucher scheme which will support the realisation of high-TRL,
large-scale, demonstration and commercialisation projects across Europe. We will effect change among more than 6200
organisations, primarily SMEs.
VIDA combines expertise from four complementary European Strategic Cluster Partnerships (ESCPs): FoodPackLab,
EU4Food, Energy in Water and AdPack, with a direct reach of over 700 SMEs across the partner clusters (and 2100 SMEs
across the collaborating ESCPs). The collaborating partners have been carefully selected to ensure a complementary
balance of geographies, knowledge, experience and expertise within VIDA's four sectors, and maximise the potential for
cross-sectoral and cross-disciplinary exchanges to create new industrial value chains.
VIDA will operate for 3 years and has a total budget of €5.031.141, €4,044,776 of which will directly and benefit SMEs (>81% of the total budget). €3,275,000 of the budget is targeted to provide specialist innovation vouchers, and catalyse large-scale demonstration with commercialisation innovation projects, with >100 beneficiaries.
