Technological Corporation of Andalusia (CTA) has participated in the annual meeting of the Plant Intercluster (PIC), a European cluster coordinated by Vegepolys Valley, which has been held electronically. The Agri-food technical officer of CTA, Nathalie Chavrier, and the consultant Macarena Ureña have given specialized training in cascade funding. The communication officer Marisol Castro has presented the main results of the European ICT-BIOCHAIN project.
This European initiative has established a digital innovation hub (DIH) in Andalusia (Spain) and another in the south-east of Ireland to implement ICT solutions in the biomass supply chain.
The annual PIC meeting is the most important cluster event in the plant production industry in Europe. This event aims to foster innovation in the sector and create a common strategy to ease the international development of plant clusters and their members companies.
With almost 10 years of experience, the PIC has created a solid international cluster network that works thanks to a common vision of its members around plant production.
