Virtual Conference

"EUROPEAN LEGUMES IN TRANSITION"

The objectives of LEGVALUE and TRUE projects were; to define platforms for change that can help deliver greater EU self-sufficiency in vegetable protein production; to identify opportunities for innovation, adding value to markets and all participants in the value chains and; to recognise opportunities to influence change, be they at commercial, research or at policy level. As the projects came to a conclusion they joined together in a series of webinars "European Legumes in Transition", which explored the value chain and launched the Legume Innovation Network. The LIN aims to ensure innovation across the entire Pulse and vegetable legume industry, growing into a wide interconnected web of contacts linking people with similar interests.

Each webinar  started at 10am CET on the dates shown below.
