The JRC is organising the Smart Specialisation Thematic Platform Days in Bilbao, which will bring together, for the first time, the three Smart Specialisation Thematic Platforms. Over 200 participants from all over the EU will come together to explore learning, networking and business interregional opportunities in areas linked to agri-food, energy and industrial modernisation.
The book discusses recent innovation and diversification paths in agri-food, specifically the linkages among food research and innovation, production, consumption, gastronomy, and place branding as well as technology. It also focuses on EU policies and instruments in support of R&I activities in agri-food, and explores agri-food domains within the context of smart specialisation.
