S3FOOD

Smart Sensor Systems for Food Safety, Quality Control and Resource Efficiency in the Food Processing Industry

S3FOOD

ViaMéca is partner of the S3FOOD project that will start in May 2019. This project will facilitate the digitalization of the food processing industry by stimulating the implementation of smart sensor systems in the food production processes and thus making the generation of digital data possible and also by providing training and support in relation to data collection, management and mining.

2 open calls for proposals will be launched in 2020 to provide food processing SMEs and technology providing SMEs with financial support (through vouchers) and training to carry out their innovation activites. The successful SMEs will be awarded with an innovation voucher worth up to the value of 60 000.00€:

  • Travel voucher (to help maturation of ideas and projects): up to 650.00€
  • Scalability and feasibility analysis voucher (to transfer an innovation to the market): up to 30 000.00€
  • Prototyping voucher (to develop cross-sectoral/-cluster/-border prototype of a new improved technology, service, product or production process): up to 60 000.00€
  • Demonstration voucher (to demonstrate cross-sectoral/-cluster/-border solutions in relation to the living labs, pilot facilities or technology platforms) : up to 60 000.00€
