WHY SHOULD I GO?

i-Danha Food Lab Annual Event brings together agri-food stakeholders, all united in the willingness to accelerate the revolution in food systems, making it more sustainable to sustain our societies and the planet. 

​ 

Right after the world's biggest tech conference, WebSummit, we will take agrifood innovation experts on a unique adventure to one of the oldest Roman villages in Portugal: Monsanto.

While you experience the uniqueness of Monsanto and Idanha, the event showcases different European projects, namely: European Digital innovation Hub, TransFarmers, Biolog and EIT Food projects - one of the innovation communities of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT): Grow Workshops, HelpFood and the Post Harvest School. 

At this 4th edition, participants will have the opportunity to take part in interactive sessions, explore networking opportunities with different stakeholders, discover EIT Food programmes and projects driving change in the food system, and explore new collaborations. 

​ 

This event will be organised by BGI, Food4Sustainability and Idanha-a-Nova City Hall as an occasion to showcase our work, build new connections, be inspired, discover and discuss new ways to bring change to food systems.
