The Dairy Value Chain (DVC) confronts joint challenges at Mediterranean  cross-border level: the growing market demand for high quality and safety and  the industrialization of farming and globalization. In this context, cross border  cooperation is needed to create the critical mass of research results marketable  by spin-offs to cover the entire DVC.

TRANSDAIRY aims to enhance the Technological Transfer among research,  industry and SMEs in the fields of Key Enabling Technologies (KET’s) applied to  the Dairy Value Chain, by the creation of Living Labs, the increase of institutional  capacities, and the development of market intelligence for sustainability by creation of Cross Border Spin-offs in Italy, Greece, Lebanon and Tunisia.
