There is limited connection between the actors of the knowledge triangle (education, research, and innovation), while small and medium-sized agro-food businesses usually do not have resources (either financial or human) to innovate – or to implement already existing innovations by themselves. Therefore these enterprises do not have the opportunity to maximize their raw food procession. Thus the agro-food complex represents an insufficiently utilized potential of the region; improving its competitiveness and innovatory features will improve the competitiveness of the target area. Thanks to that higher returns of SMEs will result in additional job opportunities.
The direct objective of the project Co-Innovation is to create new product and process innovations in order to produce natural nutrition complexes, which helps the plant growth using new, eco-friendly technologies. Moreover, it aims to develop new technology models in order to create new products complying with the new nutrition models and trends, and for the processing of by-products from grapes.
Also, the project will develop new practices for measurement of nutritional values & quality, in order to rule out the health risks of new products, therefore it is important to measure possible hormones, pesticides and residues. Finally, an online platform and pool of experts available for counselling for regional SMEs will be established.
The cross-border approach of the project will help spreading the new technologies and product innovations, which thus can be utilised by businesses on both sides of the border.
