" European Legumes in Transition"

14th April 2021 - Brussels, Belgium

Concluding conference of the LegValue project


The LegValue project began in 2017 with the remit to examine the entire legume value chain in the EU.

Lead by Frederic Muel and the team from Terres Innovia the multi-national multi-partner consortium has spent 4 years piecing together a very fragmented picture.

The objective has been to examine the levers influencing increased legume production and to identifying opportunities to encourage transition in production systems, the ultimate aim being increased European self sufficiency in plant protein production.

As the project draws its conclusions this “European Legumes in Transition” conference will deliver its findings, hear from leading influencers how they believe Legumes can be exploited to deliver a more sustainable and environmentally resilient agricultural system for Europe and the opportunities that exist to realise the transitions envisaged.

Crop diversification is likely to be  a big part of European agriculture of the future and a cluster of Horizon 2020 projects are actively exploring this aspect and contributions from these projects will be presented at this conference too. 

A significant knowledge transfer and networking event, this conference is limited to 150 people and is expected to attract an audience representing the entire supply chain from across Europe.
