The objective of the meeting is to capitalize on the projects funded by Era-Nets programmes in particular, Arimnet and Era-Net-Med.  The event will be also the opportunity to provide visibility to project results, share best practices and enhance their networking.

The project PHEMAC (project funded under PRIMA 2019-NEXUS-CSA) will provide services and explore ways how to help already finished projects to valorize their results and understand the support actions, tools, incentives, or instruments that projects may require to reach the market, depending on their maturity stage.

The joint event will be held entirely online. It will be highly interactive with discussions triggered by moderators tasked to review the state-of-the-art of the results and main outputs, outcomes, and impacts of the funded projects. Coordinators will summarize their projects through an impact pathway canvas. Breakout Groups will offer opportunities to give easier discussion in different thematic areas 1) Water Management, 2) Farming systems, 3) Agro-food value chains, and 4) Nexus.

As a result of the event, once disclosed main achieved outputs, outcomes, and impacts, it will be possible to provide wider visibility and opportunity for brokerage and match-making with interested stakeholders from the private sector as well as a final assessment of the maturity results of the said projects, through PHEMAC platform (iHub).
