Coordinated by the University of Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli” (Italy), TRANSDAIRY Project aims to enhance the technological transfer among research, industry and SMEs in the fields of Key Enabling Technologies applied to the Dairy Value Chain, by the creation of Living Labs, the increase of institutional capacities through training, and the development of market intelligence for sustainability and consolidation of spin-offs.
The project will provide financial support for the creation of startups, registration of patents, publications, training classes and workshops in a total of 8 living labs distributed across the Mediterranean area (Italy, Lebanon, Greece, and Tunisia).
Home to some of the world’s most ancient civilizations, hub for trade and transport, unique hotspot for biodiversity, the Mediterranean faces a multitude of common challenges, including climate change, pollution, youth unemployment and social inequality.
Acting together to address these challenges and improve the lives of men and women across the region is the impetus for the 2014-2020 ENI CBC “Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme”. ENI CBC Med is the largest Cross-Border Cooperation (CBC) initiative implemented by the EU under the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI).
The Programme brings together the coastal territories of 14 EU and partner countries, including Lebanon, in view of fostering fair, equitable and sustainable development on both sides of the EU’s external borders.
