COOPID - CE-FNR-15-2020


COOPID proposes an innovative and effective strategy to inspire primary producers and stimulate the uptake of inclusive and sustainable bio-based business models in the European primary production sector, considering regional & sectorial particularities. Currently, bioeconomy starts on the fields, yet meaningful participation of the primary sector is currently challenged: this is an issue COOPID is meant to address.

The project started on January 2021, it will last 2 years and gathers 11 partners from 10 different countries:

  • Agri-food Cooperatives Spain (ES,projectcoordinator)
  • Innovarum (ES)
  • Greenflex (FR)
  • Universita Di Bologna (IT)
  • Gaia Epicheirein (EL)
  • Agricultural University - Plovdiv (BG)
  • Instytut Ekonomiki Rolnictwai Gospodarki Żywnościowej, Państwowy Instytut Badawczy (PL)
  • the National Chamber of Agriculture and Forestry in Styria (AT)
  • Munster Technological University (IE)
  • Food & Biocluster Denmark (DK)
  • Proagria Oulu (FI)

To do so, COOPID envisions the development of an ad-hoc created network of “BioeconomyClusters” from 10 European countries, involving a wide range of stakeholders: primary producers - cooperatives or associations within agriculture, forestry & aquaculture-, industry, public sector, research & academia. As of now, COOPID already has the commitment of 73 entities to participate as partners of the “COOPID Bioeconomy Clusters”.
