TRANSDAIRY Co-Patent Development Program
Call for Dairy-preneurs & Researchers
This is your chance to receive an €8,000 grant to patent your research or technology in the dairy sector.
As part of the TRANSDAIRY Living Lab activities, Berytech will select 2 dairy enterprises and researchers who are looking to create and register their research or technology focusing on the Dairy Value Chain (ICT and Bio/nanotechnology) as a patent.
2 selected participants from Lebanon will benefit from an 8,000-euro voucher, which will enable them to register their research and technology in the dairy sector as a patent.
The objective is to give the opportunity to dairy researchers or technologists to exclusively obtain the right for their inventions, new products, or processes. The selection process will give precedence to young and women entrepreneurs.
Submit your application to be among the two selected applicants who will benefit from an €8,000 grant to secure exclusive rights for their inventions, products, or processes in the dairy value chain.
