  • The International Conference “COOPERATING FOR MEDITERRANEAN INNOVATION IN AGRIFOOD” on 16 December 2022

Entrepreneurship and innovation agri-food ecosystems in the Mediterranean are increasingly evolving seeking to better respond to the needs of business communities, with a special focus on the younger generation. Ecosystem players need to adapt in a smart way. New and diverse collaborations are required, new and different approaches and support measures are needed to support current and future innovators and entrepreneurs.

In this scenario, the conference aims to bring together Senior representatives from 10 international institutions and organisations who will convene to answer the question: "What are the opportunities that "innovation ecosystems" can and shall provide to young people in the Mediterranean area who wish to set up innovative enterprises aimed at modernising the agri-food sector?"
