Why Shared Facilities
State-of-the-art innovation facilities are fundamental to successful innovation and the transition towards a sustainable food system. But research equipment, development, demonstration, upscaling and production facilities are expensive and capacity is not always fully used.
Ten years of sharing research equipment at Wageningen University & Research (WUR) have proven very fruitful. The protein facility map of Foodvalley NL did support companies to find facilties. WUR and Foodvalley NL have now joined forces to make facility sharing available for the entire innovation ecosystem with Shared facility finder.
The demand for plant-based variations for meat, dairy and fish is exploding. Supply of ingredients and products can hardly keep up, creating a ‘protein gap’. Switching the application of existing facilities adds to closing this gap.
Can your facilities or factory be of value, creating new business opportunities?
Through a quickscan, we can support you in evaluating time and effort to switch your facility towards plant-based protein ingredients or products. Fill in this quickscan and find out if your facilities may also harvest the plant protein potential. If that’s the case, we can match you to experts from the Foodvalley NL Protein Shift-ecosystem. E.g. knowledge providers or members from The Protein Cluster, Foodvalley NL’s Protein Shift network.
