We are agrifood clusters from differen parts of the euro-region , which have a high network and some strong links with the actors active in the sector. Cooperations and mutual activities with RTOs and incubators/accelerators, specifically focusing on the biotechnological sector already exist and will be enhanced in the framework of the cross-sectoral, but also the interregional ecosystems will be further enhanced and this via the organisation of study visits, where actors from transition and less developed regions will exchange with more developed regions. These visits will be focused on sharing of clusters euro-region biotechnology Biotech4Food best practices, mutual learning and creating of structured links.
