As part of the Transdairy Living Lab activities, Berytech will select 2 dairy researchers who are looking to develop and publish articles on Key Enabling Technologies in the Dairy Value Chain (ICT and Bio/nano).
The finalists from Lebanon partnering with authors from the same or from a different institution will benefit from a 2,000-euro voucher, which will enable them to publish their research and technology in the dairy sector.
The objective of having co-publications is to strengthen the relationship among different key research institutions in the dairy sector and promote key insights, data and knowledge in the sector.
Additionally, the vouchers will give the opportunity to dairy researchers or technologists to publish the outcome of their findings and make it more visible to the dairy stakeholders and the community in Lebanon and the Mediterranean.
Invitation to participate and benefit from the subsequent Transdairy activities for 2023, which include:
Submit your application to be among the two selected applicants who will benefit from a €2,000 voucher to secure exclusive rights for their inventions, products, or processes in the dairy value chain.

Following the completion of the training, the participants will pitch their solution to a jury. The Jury will shortlist 10 participants based on innovation, economic viability and solid proof of concept of the solution. They will take several one-to-one coaching and technical sessions with experts in the field to further develop their pitch decks.
These 10 participants will present during the Transdairy Open Day, which will take place at the end of the year 2021.
Transdairy is a project funded by the European Union under the ENI CBC Med Program to grow innovation and entrepreneurship opportunities in the Dairy Value Chain and empower this ecosystem in the Mediterranean. The project will use the open innovation and living lab methodology to bring stakeholders together including researchers, industry players, SMEs, representatives from the public sector, entrepreneurs, to exchange best practices, collaborate, and implement Key Enabling Technologies and solutions applied to the Dairy Value Chain.
Throughout this project, Berytech will be facilitating the setup of Innovation Living Labs, supporting the development and financing of innovation and entrepreneurship projects, and enable matchmaking and collaboration opportunities among different stakeholders in the Dairy Value Chain in Lebanon and the Mediterranean.
