Phytopharmaceuticals and natural cosmetics are an important economic pillar in Europe and gain increasing attention. Data collected by the German Pharmaceutical Industry Association (BPI) make Germany the leader in phytopharmaceutical production in the EU.
With our event “Phytopharma Day – Fostering transnational cooperation in the Danube Region” we are providing the opportunity to connect you with key stakeholders along the phytopharmaceutical value chain in the Danube Region. Themes on the Program will be the cultivation/collection of the raw material, the processing towards the final product and eventually sustainable bio-based packaging of your product.
The Phytopharma Day will be the very first occasion where you can discuss and share ideas with experts at every value-adding step along the value chain in the Danube Region. We will listen to high-class speakers, discussing the World and European market and learn about best practices from established companies working at different steps of the value chain. To efficiently interact with potential partners, a Meet&Match will be organised after the lectures, where you can share project ideas. Cluster managers and companies throughout the whole Danube Region will get the possibility to connect transnationally.
Potentials of Danube Region and perspectives
The Danube Region with its rich cultural and ecological diversity offers high potential for cross-sectoral and transnational cooperation. Good and sustainable cooperation will support the regional development by diversifying the local economy and creating new employment opportunities. The development of new bio-based value chains from primary production to consumer markets needs to be done by connecting enterprises from different regions and industries.
