Presenting funding opportunities for agrifood innovations
The workshop “Funding opportunities for agrifood innovations: Cascade funding calls” will look at several Open Calls that are being launched within different Horizon Europe projects. These Open Calls provide unique opportunities to receive equity-free funding spanning a diverse range of AgTech and FoodTech sectors and across many distinct implementation scales. Participants will explore the key details of several Open Calls, including the context and background of the project launching the call, key timelines, available funding as well as who each Open Call is targeting and the types of activities that will be funded.
The funding calls to be presented are those associated with the ICAERUS, SPADE, CHAMELEON, TITAN, and INCITIS FOOD projects.
The aim of Foodscale Hub’s presence at Synergy Days is to be a hub of innovation and collaboration.
