Regional cluster meeting "Obtaining products from plant alternatives to common protein sources" was held on 11th of June 2018 in Quakenbrück, Germany
The event was organised by the EurA network ProVetChi in collaboration with DIL e.V. – the German institute for food technology.
In addition to the ongoing project work, contacts were made with various European initiatives, which were discussed at the meeting and will probably lead to European research proposals.
The meeting has shown that there is still a clear need for exchange with other potential product developers and " market promoters" and that these must also be integrated into the current network activities. Several guests who are loosely connected to the network have already been invited here. Companies and organisations with international market access are also to be more closely involved in the activities of the network, such as the international ProVeg association and the Dutch Protein Cluster Food Valley NL.
Agenda of the meeting icluded the following topics Current status of the network; Presentation and discussion of ongoing R&D projects; nformation and experience related to EU projects, calls and programmes, including INTERREG and COSME TracE-kEI; Protein extraction from Camelina and Visitation to the DIL facilities
