Resilience Skills Hub

The Skills Hub is aimed at supporting European Food Production SMEs in building their resilience. The skills hub is a comprehensive document tool, packed with links to different resources and knowledge on biomass valorisation and zero waste.

The skills hub is specifically designed to gather knowledge and provide regular updates to SMEs, with the ultimate goal of helping them improve their resilience by optimising their biomass use.

The project has prioritised five specific value chains to explore challenges and opportunities in the biomass market: cereals and wheat bran, dairy, spent grains, stone fruits and apples, and grapevine & winemaking. SMEs will find specific biomass analysis, as well as articles or videos dedicated to these value chains in the skills hub.

Additionally, Part IV of the skills hub will include content about other value chains. The skills hub is a one-stop-shop for SMEs to access valuable information and resources to improve their resilience.

The B-Resilient project’s skills hub is a game-changer in the industry, and we are excited to share this tool with you.

This project has received European funding under Grant Agreement 101074621 of which 1,12 million goes directly to Food Processing SME thanks to the B-Resilient Financial Support to Third Parties Scheme.

Funded by the European Union. Views and opinions expressed are however those of the author(s) only and do not necessarily reflect those of the European Union or EISMEA. Neither the European Union nor the granting authority can be held responsible for them.
