Next 31st of May COOPID organises the final event of the project after 2.5 years of work: the COOPID Bioeconomy Conference, an official #EUGreenWeek 2023 Partner Event.

Download here the preliminary agenda.


COOPID is an H2020-funded project active since January 2021 with the mission to foster the development of the bioeconomy in the agri-food sector. With this goal, the project has implemented a strategy based on a cascading multiplier effect:

  1. The selection of 11 real successful businesses in the EU and the organisation of visits to these cases. Participants raised to more than 500.
  2. An ambassador programme with primary producers (127 #COOPIDambassadors) and more than 1500 impacts.
  3. The production of high-quality resources (>4000 downloads & views) and a supportive digital project presence.

Why Join Us?

Participate in person in the final project conference where the results of 2.5 years of work will be presented.

  1. Take part in a debate with experts on challenges faced by primary producers in the bioeconomy & business opportunities that are on the rise.
  2. Connect with key players in the sector.
