Seminar: Horizon Europe and Cluster Opportunities+closing

Note: This session is primarily addressed to Cluster managers and staff and public authorities staff

Scope: At this early stage of the new 7-year Research & Innovation programme, we give the floor to policy makers and practitioners who have helped build the new instruments which clusters must get ready to use if they want to facilitate their mission of innovation brokers.

  • Kristina Sermuksnyte-Alesiuniene General Manager, AgriFood Lithuania DIH on European Digital Innovation Hubs
  • Dirk Carrez, Bio-Based Industries Consortium (BIC) on European Partnership for Circular Bio-based Europe (CBE)
  • Emma Sidgwick of Flanders Food, Belgium, on involving Clusters and their members in BBI JJU activities

Followed by a discussion Panel of PIC clusters' representatives including, Vegepolys-Valley, Biovegen, FEMAC, Corporación Tecnológica de Andalucía, Ind-Agro-Pol, GreenPortWestHolland, AgriSudOuestInnovation, Innov'Alliance, AgroCluster, UNIMOS, Food&Bio Cluster Denmark and Agrifood Emilia-Romagna.

This will lead us to the closing of the event by
