TRACK, CONNSENSYS and DIGICLUSTERS, 3 COSME.ESCP.S3 project working in digitalization on Agrifood Value Chain (Production, Processing and Packaging) closed their project together.
TRACK was supposed to finish on September 30th with a Final Event in Brussels on 24th. Due to the COVID-19 and a Non-Cost Extension until November 30th. TRACK adapted the phase out period with a final event held remotely and divided in 3 Meetings in coordination with 2 others COSME ESCP.S3.
The 2 first steps (09/24 & 10/08) are gathering the 3 consortia and aim to learn about the actions and results achieved in the last 2 years. Together, we consider also build a strong messages to our policy makers regarding European Interclustering Collaboration & Challenges on Digitalization in our sector. Then, giving us a space of discussion to identify how our initiatives could bring new bridges, collaborations, projects in the next future.
All conclusions of those 2 meetings will be shared in one final conference on October 26th, afternoon. Where each coordinator will introduce the results of the project and then open discussions with the audience, through our common key messages and lessons learnt. Region representatives, S3 Coordinators, Advisory board, DIH Coordinators and clusters are invited. Of course, the digital event reduces the ability of networking and also the length of the meeting. Nevertheless, the 3 projects want to interact as much as possible with the participants.
All TRACK closing events will take place online. The first one was on September 24, and was a joint TRACK / DIGICLUSTERS / CONNSENSYS meeting. 21 Clusters participated: their representatives introduced themselves and discussed the purpose of the projects in which they are involved. The next meeting will be on October 8.
The real final meeting, which is interesting for a broader audience, is scheduled on October 26th.
