TRANSDAIRY project boosts technology transfer in the Mediterranean dairy sector
September 7, 2023
Berytech, Lebanon organised an event to celebrate the conclusion of two impactful EU-funded projects under the ENI CBC Med program: BESTMEDGRAPE, aimed at valorising grape waste from winemaking; and STAND Up!, focused on supporting eco-innovative entrepreneurs and enterprises within the textile and clothing sector.
Throughout the years 2020 to 2023, both sectorial projects have been successful in building capacity and providing opportunities for growth to green start-ups and SMEs in these Mediterranean countries.
BESTMEDGRAPE is a 48-month project launched in 2019 to support the creation of new startups and SMEs by transferring scientific and technological knowledge on local grape cultivars and the exploitation of wine by-products as sources of bioactive compounds that can be transformed into innovative commercial health product. Check out the project’s video presentation.
The STAND Up! project addresses the need for transitioning to an environmentally and socially responsible circular model in the textile sector, a traditional key industry in the Mediterranean. The program was implemented by 6 partners across several Mediterranean countries, including Egypt, Italy, Lebanon, Spain, and Tunisia.Check out the project’s video presentation.
