Objective

Deliverables

  • Project webpage

    Webpage showing all information related to the FRESH-DEMO project (e.g. objectives, results, the beneficiaries and the technological approach in general).

  • Project flyer, poster, banner

    Different tools for mass dissemination, such as project leaflet, poster, and banners, containing information on the FRESH-DEMO project's scope and objectives, the list and contact details of participants, a reference to the project website, etc.

  • Training courses material (including presentations, hand outs etc.)

    Training material for the five one day training workshops

  • Promotion video

    Professional promotion video about the project and the technology.

  • Report on demonstration workshops

    Report on the one-day workshops, which take place alongside each industrial validation series.

  • List of established publications and newsletters

    List of established publications (e.g. in relevant technical journals related to food equipment, food technology and fresh produce) and newsletters (e.g. of international and national fresh produce associations).

  • Report on cost benefit analysis

    The report will cover the results of the cost benefit analysis for the humidification/disinfection systems, considering aspects such as energy consumption, transport intensity, discard reduction, product quality and human health.

  • List of attended and planned fairs, conferences

    List of attended and planned fairs, conferences (including virtual tradeshows)

  • Report on training workshops

    Report on the five one day training workshops. The workshops will focus on the training of all the project outcomes (cost-benefit analysis, user manuals, legal/technical requirements, etc.) and explain the operation of the system in detail. Additional focus is on creating networking between the FRESH-DEMO consortium members and the workshop participants, in order to collaborate in future.

  • Report on permissions and authorisations

    Report on obtainance of any permissions and authorisations, which are necessary for the large-scale production, installation, and application of FRESH-DEMO systems and the natural sanitizers.

  • Report on hybrid-LCA

    The report will cover the results of the hybrid life cycle assessment results, where environmental input-output life cycle assessment (EIO-LCA) will be integrated with results from process-based life cycle assessment (LCA).
