This two-day event organised by Greenovate! Europe attracted over 120 attendants, bringing together researchers from the agricultural, fisheries, food and biotechnology sectors. The variety of participants made it a valuable networking opportunity for those in search of investors, industrial partners, or new consortia to further develop their results. Participants praised the innovative format of the conference, which included “elevator pitch” sessions on how to optimise exploitation strategies and bring results to market, but also round-table “knowledge exchange” sessions to share and generate ideas for further research. The ProBIO project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement n° 652683.
