Excellence hub in green technologies: Introducing innovation ecosystems in the Mediterranean food value chain.
The overarching objective of EXCEL4MED is to create an Excellence Hub in Mediterranean fruit supply chains. The project aims at identifying high-impact strategies and establish lines of resilience for producers, processors, consumers and policymakers. This will be achieved by considering agility, adaptability, and alignment within the four domains of business, collaboration, sourcing, and knowledge management.
Overall, EXCEL4MED will offer an adaptive capability in the Mediterranean supply chain preparing for novel waste valorisation strategies, production of added value fruit products following a holistic commerce, and the implementation of green innovative technological methodologies within a Quadruple Helix concept. EXCEL4MED will develop and demonstrate the solution in Mediterranean high-value perishable food supply chains: pomegranate and citrus fruits. Importantly, EXCEL4MED will disseminate this solution to end-users and organise training courses for stakeholders.
