Food Innovation Stakes & Business competitiveness at a European level: the key to success for business-university partnerships
For the first time, three food projects FooD-STA, FOODLAB & IDEFI-ECOTROPHELIA get together to organize an international conference about food innovation stakes & business competitiveness at a European level. This event will especially cover the benefits and success of business-university partnerships, the importance of the sustainable development, the interest of business incubators and financial stakes.
Innovation is an efficient competitiveness lever for the Food & Drink processing industries which evolve in a complex and demanding market. Business-university partnership is an interesting arrangement for both universities and industry: a rewarding professional experience for students and a good way to innovate for industries. This conference will handle those business-university partnerships and will approach different ways to support industries that innovate (business incubators and financial stakes). We will also broach the subject of sustainable development which must be included in the innovation process.
