The aim was to introduce the cascade funding scheme to companies, present good practices like SmartGeoFish and provide a networking opportunity to the participants.
Aquaculture is one of the world’s fastest growing food production systems. This sector is rapidly gaining importance as a result of dwindling catches of fish from natural water bodies and increasing global demand for seafood.
Production systems should be sustainable, economically viable and socially acceptable at the same time.
The aim of the webinar was to present challenges of the national and international aquaculture sector and the opportunities digitalization can offer.
The presentations of the webinar (in Hungarian)
The event was organized as part of the Netherlands trade mission on the circular economy, construction and waste management. Campden BRI Hungary as a DIH service provider working with several sectors (aquaculture, meat, dairy etc.) was invited to participate on both days to expand its network.
