The HempClub project, funded by the COSME Programme, brings together 7 clusters and associations operating in the bioeconomy, advanced manufacturing and hemp production sectors to create interconnected and interregional supply chains between operators in primary production, agri-food processing and green chemistry in the hemp and bioeconomy sector.
HempClub implements the ClusterXchange pilot scheme which aims to support short-term exchanges between two different COSME countries to better connect Europe’s industrial ecosystems. It facilitates transnational cooperation, peer learning, networking and innovation uptake between actors of different industrial clusters and it is a great opportunity to share knowledge and commercial opportunities in the bioeconomy, enhance collaboration and networking among actors of EU bioeconomy value chains and learn more about the potential of hemp as sustainable biomass.
On the May 9-11 will be held in Milan the next ClusterXChange organized by the HempClub project – the Business Exchange in the food sector. This exchange aims to create valuable networking opportunities in the agrifood sector by bringing together different operators of the value chain around Europe.
Participants will have the opportunity to share knowledge, individuate potential collaboration and commercial opportunities in the bioeconomy among the Host Organization (and its cluster associates) and Visiting organizations and enhance collaboration and networking among actors of EU food value chains to enhance and promote the European hemp industry globally, particularly in the food sector.
In addition, this event will provide the opportunity to visit local companies and interact with local stakeholders operating in the hemp and food sector and finally to participate in the “Tutto Food” fair and interact with expositors having the opportunity to compare and learn about different realities in this field. You can find more information about the fair at the following link: https://www.tuttofood.it/.
The exchange will be hosted by Consorzio Italbiotec, the Italian leading no-profit organization in the biotechnology sector. To sign and to know more about the program and the topics of the event click on the following link: https://www.eventbrite.it/e/business-exchange-in-the-food-sector-ticket….
