FEMAC HOSTS THE PIC MEETING 2017 IN LLEIDA, SPAIN
The Catalan Cluster of Agricultural Production Means (FEMAC) in collaboration with The PIC consortium, QUALIMEDITERRANEE, VEGEPOLYS and TERRALIA organise the 7th edition of the PIC meeting, the most important event in the plant production industry organized annually in Europe, which will be held in Lleida (Spain) on the 27th and the 28th of September 2017. This event is addressed to SMEs, Research Centers, Farmers, agricultural companies, agro professionals, Universities, Start Ups, and clusters from all over the world.
The first day of the event will be focused on a general view of the European Programs on Agriculture, farm and Plant Innovation and it will hold three different workshops which each participant will be able to choose in accordance to their interests. These workshops will deal with the Crop Management approach, the Digitization of the Agri-food sector and the Innovative Technology for Genetics and Breeding. The second day will be build around B2B sessions among the participants to foster future strategic cooperations and around the parallel visits to IRTA, the Agricultural Research Institute in Catalonia, and to the Vineyard Production Plantation in Raimat (Lleida), which will be hosted by AGROPIXEL, a crop management consultancy.
The Inter Plant Cluster Consortium is a strategic alliance of the three French clusters which focuses its innovation in the following crops: cereals, seeds, fruit and vegetables, ornamental horticulture, vineyards, tropical plants, medicinal and aromatic. This international network has the mission to build strong international partnerships with clusters around those sectors.
The Pic meeting is one the events that the Consortium organizes and has already celebrated 6 editions since 2011 in different French cities such as Paris, Marseille, Angers and Montpelier and countries like Portugal and Argentine, all of them with the same topic and structure. Previous editions have been driven by the main aim to develop international cooperation, both in terms of international discovery missions for its members and the setting up of European projects, always positioning the event in the plant sector. The initiative of this year’s Pic Meeting arose from the strategic relationship of the Consortium with FEMAC, who will be pleasingly hosting and organizing it.
