VIDA - Value-added Innovation in fooD chAins aims to drive Europe’s global competitiveness and economic development by bringing together a food-energy-water nexus in food chains through VIDA Voucher Scheme.

VIDA’s main objective is to support optimisation and resource efficiency in food value chains through innovation.

Some companies will present resource efficiency challenges and solution in the agri-food sector, both as end-users and technology suppliers.
