The EU Collaboration Corner will be located just outside the Auditorium on the Mezzanine floor and will showcase six projects funded by the EU Research and Innovation Programmes, FP7 and Horizon 2020. These projects aim to tackle societal challenges, such as food security and sustainable agriculture, facilitate new value chains and the bioeconomy, and develop key and enabling technologies. By promoting excellent science and industrial leadership, the EU aims to be at the forefront of innovation.
The projects on display this year cover a wide range of subjects. MyNewGut is investigating the role of diet on the gut microbiome and overall health and well-being. Katana is supporting the market introduction of innovations in the agrifood sector. Oleum is looking for solutions to protect olive oil quality and authenticity. NanoPack is developing antimicrobial packaging solutions to improve food safety and reduce waste. AQUABIOPRO-FIT is sourcing nutritional ingredients from marine by-products. NoBaY is looking for partners for a new project to create innovative food products for people with a baker’s yeast intolerance.
