The EU project DIVA has organized on the 4th and 5th of March its final event in collaboration with the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN). The project is funded by the Horizon 2020 program of the European Union, and led by a consortium of 10 expert entities from 6 European countries, including CTA. 396 projects have been presented on DIVA open calls, out of which 134 have been financed internationally.
DIVA has launched two open calls divided into three evaluation categories:166 projects were submitted to maturity, 215 projects to demonstration and 15 initiatives to internationalization.
This three-year project aimed to promote innovation applied to business models, through the introduction of technology throughout the entire value chain: from raw material production to processing in the factory, until the transport phase, logistics and its arrival at the final consumer.
The DIVA project consortium is led by the French Agri-Sud Ouest Innovation cluster, together with nine other expert entities from six European countries: France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Greece and Ireland, mostly associations or groups of companies from the sectors mentioned, including CTA and AMETIC, as Spanish partners. The other partners that make up the consortium are: Digital113 (FR), CRPV and H-farm (IT), Tec Labs and InescTEc (PT), GRNET (GR) and Teagasc (IR).
