A series of dissemination activites by INNOVACC and UVIC took place during September.
First of all, on September 15th they participated in the Watertalks conference, which was organized by the Catalan Water partnership and the main theme of which was water management in the agri-food sector. INNOVACC, as a representative cluster of the meat and alternative protein sector, took part in the day, exposing the concerns and needs of the sector regarding water management, including a specific explanation of the objectives of the Accelwater project. Additionally UVIC presented the AccelWater project, talking about innovative technologies for the management and treatment of wastewater from slaughterhouses.

On September 27th INNOVACC organized an on-line Cluster projects day, during which some collaborative projects promoted by INNOVACC were presented. In these projects have participated some associated partners and institutions. Presentations were devoted to innovation in the meat industry (slaughterhouse, cutting plants and processing plants). Around 30 users were connected who could learn more about meat industry digitisation projects, how to improve shelf life and nutritional profile of meat products, slaughterhouse sustainability among others. UVIC presented the two main objectives of the AccelWater project and the preliminary results obtained during its first two years. Click here for the presentation (in Spanish).
Finally, on September 29th and 30th, UVIC participated in the new edition of the Bioeconomy Congress of Catalonia (BIT), that was organized at the Congress Palace-La Llotja of Lleida , in the framework of the Saint Miquel Fair. This is the second edition of the BIT Congress, after the one organized in Vic last March, aiming at opening new spaces to learn about trends, innovations and business projects related to the bioeconomy. During the first day of the event, UVIC participated in a thematic session on knowledge as a driver of the bioeconomy, in which they presented the results of the European project AccelWater on the reuse of wastewater in the food industry through recovery and reuse technologies.
