Debates, B2B, training seminars for young innovation hub managers, international conferences; experts, representatives of international organisations; 50 start-ups and companies from 10 Mediterranean countries: these are some of the highlights of the second edition of the Mediterranean Innovation Agrifood Week scheduled from 12 to 16 December at the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute CIHEAM Bari at Cosimo Lacirignola Campus.
The protagonist of the event will be the Strategic Action of the Interreg V-A Programme, Creative@Hubs, coordinated in Puglia by the Department of Agriculture, Rural and Environmental Development and implemented by a territorial network in which CIHEAM Bari is one of the collaborating bodies.
The main topic of discussion will focus on cooperation for innovation in the Mediterranean agri-food sector: an evolving ecosystem.
Numerous activities will engage the CREATIVE@HUBS project partners during the Mediterranean Innovation Agrifood Week. The event will start with an International seminar for hub managers that will focus on providing key skills for managing hybrid innovation spaces and will take place in Valenzano at the CIHEAM Bari headquarters on 14 and 15 December. This will be followed by a study visit mission planned in Bari from 14 to 16 December, which will take the Greek and Italian managers of the 8 creative hubs created through the project to visit various public spaces dedicated to coworking and creativity in the cultural and creative industries. On 15 afternoon, from 3.30 p.m. at CIHEAM BARI (Valenzano), B2B meetings are scheduled between Greek, Apulian and other Mediterranean cultural, creative and agri-food companies. The B2B will be introduced by Mr. Panagiotis Zaragas, from the Commercial Section of the Greek Embassy in Rome.
