Eatex: new collaborative innovation hub for transfer and implementation of agri-food technology in Navarra, Spain

CNTA, Spain’s National Center for Food Technology and Safety, has created the Eatex Food Innovation Hub, a new collaborative innovation hub for the transfer and implementation of technology in the agri-food industry

To promote the development of technological solutions, the hub also plans to provide financing, as well as to streamline project management and make it results-oriented. In this sense, collaboration and the creation of synergies with other entities and initiatives will play an important role.

This project will address six areas of research: the boost to agriculture and livestock farming of the future; the search for new ingredients and production models; the development of new foods and beverages for healthy eating; the implementation of Industry 4.0 and hyper-connected processes; innovation applied to food packaging and preservation systems; and the application of circularity and valorization of the use of waste and by-products.

Projects like these help to take a step forward to the Spanish ecosystem, supporting and motivating entrepreneurs in innovation and development of new projects.
