INGREEN project was present during the BBI JU Stakeholder Forum 2019 which took place in Brussels on December 4th. On the first day of the project event, Narinder Bains, the project coordinator from INEUVO, presented the recent research results of INGREEN and he participated in an interesting panel discussion about Food, Feed and Health Products with other bio-based project representatives. During the BBI JU Stakeholder Forum, the visitors had the opportunity to meet some of the project partners of INGREEN, where they discussed further the project’s aim and the expected outcomes. The project’s aim on capturing potential valuable sources of unexploited bio-based compounds from paper and agro-food side-streams has attracted great interests.
The BBI JU Stakeholder forum 2019 aimed to bring together in one place different stakeholders from the bio-based industries community and promote the communication and exchange of ideas in common ground. Stakeholders such as industries, SMEs, academia, research organizations and policymakers, opinion leaders, EU community, BBI JU projects’ participants and bio-based industries communities, participated and shared the latest developments. During the forum, there was a project exhibition where 100 granted projects presented their work. This was a great opportunity for the stakeholder community to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, ideas and best practices related to bio-based sector.
