The Jordan Society for Scientific Research (JSSR) has organized the first round table in the framework of the Bestmedgrape – ENI CBC Med project.

The event brought together stakeholders from the agriculture, pharmacy, CEOs of leadership, entrepreneurship companies, and environment sectors, and associated project partners.

They discussed the recovery of grape waste, operations in cosmetics, nutraceuticals, and entrepreneurship.

People working in the grape cultivation sector are generally focused on improving the quality of grape and wine, but usually don’t consider how to make the most out of grape waste. Based on the R&D experience of the partners in the fields of grape valorization, waste exploitation and development of nanotechnological antioxidant/anti-inflammatory/anti-neurodegenerative formulations, BESTMEDGRAPE aims at supporting the creation of new startups/SMEs by transferring scientific/technological knowledge on local grape cultivars and the exploitation of wine by-products as a source of bioactive compounds that can be transformed into innovative commercial health products.
