As one of EIT Food Co-Location Centers, CLC South was established in the second half of 2017 to build bridges among leading businesses, universities and research centers. It begun its construction with partners from Italy, Israel and Spain reinforced with local innovation hubs in Lisbon, Athens, Bari and Istambul, and today has partners in every country from southern Europe, including Portugal, Greece, Malta, Cyprus 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.
"It has been our third year working towards a more innovative food sector in Southern European regions. We are working hard to connect consumers with businesses, startups, researchers and students to transform our food ecosystem and build the food of the future" Begoña Perez de Villareal, Director of EIT Food South.
