Valorisation of innovative bio-economical potentials along bio-based food & botanical extract value chains in the Alpine Space

Work package T3: Concept Validation

The objective of work package T3 is to implement pilot testing of the eco-innovative business models (E-IBM) developed within the previous work package. Discussions with different stakeholders will take place in different Alpine regions in order to discuss and further develop the most appropriate E-IBM for selected value chains (apples, herbs and walnuts) - called "Focus Group Workshops". Moreover, business visits are planned in order to practically test the business models within agricultural or food small and medium-sized enterprises producing or processing renewable resources. Joint validation report will be the main output, used later on in work package T4 for developing the transfer plan and policy advice.

Responsible partner: Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia - Chamber of Agricultural and Food Enterprises

Output: Report with validation of eco-innovative business models. We are currently working on it. 

Period: December 2019 until July 2020
