EIT Food South

Working towards a more innovative food sector in the southern European region.

What we do

As one of EIT Food Co-Location Centres, the CLC South was established in Spain in 2017 to build bridges among leading businesses, universities, research centres, institutes and the food market. It consists of partners from Cyprus, Italy, Israel Greece, Portugal and Spain and of local innovation hubs in Greece, Italy, Portugal and Turkey.

With a consumer-centric approach, our main goal is to deliver a healthier lifestyle for citizens by enhancing high-value-added cooperation and integration in order to stimulate innovation, talent development and consumer involvement.
