New technologies for agriculture and food industry

The aim of this event is to foster cross-sectorial collaboration between entities from photonics, packaging, agriculture, and food industry. The event will feature a panel of international experts covering a wide range of topics.  B2B meetings will also be held to stimulate and strengthen collaborations along the entire value chain.

These two days on new technologies applied to plant production, animal production, environment, food processing, are a result of collaboration between two European projects, FoodPackLab (COSME Go International, focused on internationalisation of European SME) and EPRISE (H2020, aiming to empower photonic SMEs in four Life Science sectors: health, food, agriculture and pharma).

Target groups

  • companies, R&D centres and research groups from the food industry and agriculture
  • companies, R&D centres and research groups from the packaging sector
  • companies, R&D centres and research groups from the photonics sector
