The 29th of October of 2020, the BIOSCHAMP project’s kick-off meeting took place. BIOSCHAMP is an ambitious project aimed at generating a solution to improve mushroom industry profitability in Europe while reducing the agronomical need for pesticides by 90%.
The meeting was organized by CTICH, coordinator of BIOSCHAMP, through an online call. Carrying out an onsite meeting was not possible for most of the project partners due to the COVID19 restrictions. Maya Hernando, Co-CEO at Innovarum, was however, was able to attend in person the beginning of the Meeting thanks to close proximity.
During the online meeting, the consortium’s 12 partners got together to prepare the first steps of the project’s execution, as well as to meet those who will be companions in this initiative for the next 3 years and a half. For example, the leaders of the different work packages explained the main tasks to be developed. In this regard, Innovarum introduced protocols for efficient communication of the project and dissemination of the results.
