AgroFossilFree project was presented at the 14th Youth Forum “Green Innovation in Border Regions” for Innovation in Wine Production organized by Drama’s Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with the Association of European Border Regions (AEBR), on the 25th of July in Drama, Greece.
This was a great opportunity to deploy the project’s key-objectives and results so far and host a fruitful discussion with the participants regarding the operation of AgEnergy platform. The Forum was organized on July 25-28 at the facilities of LAB40 business incubator, with iBO/CERTH and #WINEbility project synergizing efforts on innovation technologies.
The importance of eco-innovations in wine production has risen exponentially in recent years and is key to economic growth for the region of Drama, a border region in the north of Greece. In this youth forum, Drama Chamber identified and presented the drivers of different types of eco-innovation in the Greek wine industry. Main topics of discussion were about other initiatives to innovate the economy of border regions through cross-border cooperation. The Youth Forum was also an occasion to update AEBR’s Youth Charter for Cross-Border Cooperation. Along with workshops and discussions, participants experienced and learned about modern wine production methods including visiting various local wineries.
