“Feeding The Planet: EU Bio Food Clusters on The World Stage” is a project co-financed by the European Commission and coordinated by the Region of Lombardy, that links 3 main World-Class  Biotech and Agro-Food Clusters in Europe: Parco Tecnologico Padano (Region of Lombardy - Italy), Agropolis International (Languedoc-Roussillon - France) and Oost NV (East Netherlands, Wageningen - The Netherlands).

The project aims to set up a common and shared coherent international strategy among project partners, by bringing together the “triple Helix” Research and Business Eco-system established in the 3 European Clusters.

Through “Feeding The Planet”, EU Clusters wish to promote and commercialize the clusters’ expertise in the field of agricultural, breeding, food, R&D (including health and nutrition), either through bilateral agreements and contracts or through calls from international organisations and governmental agencies and large foundations or charities.

“Feeding The Planet” also wish to develop business opportunities and partnerships at international level in the agro-food sector, to the  benefit of innovative and biotech-based enterprises, innovative research centres and food companies/SMEs in Lombardy, Languedoc-Roussillon, and East Netherlands regions.
