A project focused on infusing Europe’s bioeconomy with the latest technologies will present its results during an online conference later this month.

The near-two year ICT-BIOCHAIN project has made huge strides in a relatively short time. As well as setting up Digital Innovation Hubs in two of the continent’s most buoyant bioeconomy regions, one in South-East Ireland, the other in Andalusia, it has also delivered a pioneering platform that connects biomass suppliers with key players in the biobased and ICT industries.

“The work carried out during the execution of ICT-BIOCHAIN has provided the two Digital Innovation Hubs with the practical knowledge and know-how needed to continue its exploitation after the completion of the project”, said the project coordinator Judit Anda, Vice-Ministry Technical Counsellor at the Andalusian Regional Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development.”

These developments will help cement the continent’s lead as one of the global capitals of the sector, which helps solve some of the world’s biggest challenges and employs millions.

To find out more, register for the online conference session on 28 May.
