SMEs in the food sector are invited to apply for a Vida-voucher. This EU-scheme supports water and energy innovations in the food industry.

VIDA is a 36 months European project (2018-2021) funded by the INNOSUP Call of HORIZON 2020 to support the innovation potential of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) working across European food chains that are interested in improving the use and efficiency of water, food, energy and key enabling technologies (KET).

VIDA aims to accelerate the implementation of new solutions (preferably key enabling technologies) in the food sector which improve the usage of water and energy with the ambition to reduce losses and consumption.

Three different vouchers

VIDA has three different types of funding vouchers to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) seeking new resource efficient
solutions.

The Innovation Support Voucher (ISV) provides in-kind and/or financial support to SME in the food, water, energy or key enabling technologies (KET) sectors to get access to external knowledge and expertise.

The Validation Voucher (VV) allows innovators to get their technological development validated.

The Demonstration Voucher (DV) offers consortia an opportunity to demonstrate their new developments on site of a ‘prospective user’.
