Collaborative Brainstorming Sessions and Interactive Workshops - Parallel sessions
Each thematic parallel session offers the opportunity to discuss in small targeted groups about possible cooperation around concrete business cases. Sessions are organised around a small number of key business ideas, presented by regional stakeholders involved in some S3 Agrifood partnership activities. Through discussion with peers and experts from different sectors, these business cases have the potential to evolve into European inter-regional pilot actions.
Under this general framework, the objective of the session is to identify opportunities and synergies for business cooperation along European value-chains, leading to a business idea becoming a real inter-regional initiative with a strong European added value aspect. These pilot initiatives will have the potential to enter into a pipeline of European business cases, which will be the focus of additional review and possible further support from Regional Governments involved in the S3 partnerships and from the European Commission.
Each session is facilitated by an expert and the result of the debate will be transferred to the representatives of the S3 Agrifood partnerships for further analysis and consideration.
