Some news about the first work package of the project 

Did you know that AlpBioEco had four work packages (WP)? In the first WP we focused on value chain analysis. For the second WP, we are currently working on the development of business concepts.The third part will be dedicated to the validation of the concept through pilot studies. In a fourth step, AlpBioEco will work on the policy transfer through political guidelines. In the following article, we present you the WP N°1 report being finalized by our German Project Partner, KErn (Competence Center for Nutrition), responsible for its coordination.

AlpBioEco publishes its first report!

AlpBioEco's first report has just been released! It gives an overview over the examined three value chains of apples, walnuts and herbs/hay in the first work package of AlpBioEco and builds up the base for further work packages. Although the investigated value chains have its specific peculiarities, a replicable roadmap for the analysis of bio-based value chains could be developed based on the learnings in the project. (Photo: AlpBioEco 1st report © AlpBioEco)
