The CINEA project is coordinated by GIRAF PM Services and has the aim to bring together leading research organizations, industry associations and innovation players from the EU and the Mediterranean region. Also, this project pretends to bridge the existing gap between research and innovation in the area of food and agriculture research through engaging a dialogue with the private sector, to facilitate the transfer of scientific knowledge to industries and public services and bi-regional cooperation between all stakeholders along the knowledge value chain in the agro-food domain.
