On 16 May in Zaragoza, CLUSTER FOOD+i will present the KATANA project at the IV Forum on Food and Agriculture Entrepreneurship in Aragon.

The KATANA project is financed under the H2020 framework innovation programme and will provide Euros 1.2 million in financing for innovative ideas within the food and agriculture industry. The aim of the project is to make the food and agriculture industry more competitive. To do this, the project will help the industry incorporate advanced technologies and will promote new products and services.

The objective is to incorporate biotechnology, robotics and hardware and software systems into all areas of agriculture and traditional food processing mechanisms. It will offer SMEs a means to collaborate and will provide access to knowledge, technology, capital and markets.

The call for tenders is now at an advanced stage (it opened towards the end of 2016) and is intended for SMEs, startups, entrepreneurs or EU citizens with a forward-looking approach as regards the food and agriculture industry, ICTs and emerging industries.

María Díaz Navarro of CLUSTER FOOD+i, who manages the project within Europe, will talk about financing and how to accelerate the progress of food and agriculture industry SMEs and will also present the project finalists.

Please register to attend the event. (Free entry. Limited places).
