Investing in research and promoting innovation are major competitive advantages which contribute significantly to the development of both entrepreneurship and the national economy.

Innovation is tightly linked with the competitiveness and growth of the food sector. This is why SEVT supports and promotes the collaboration between the Research & Academic community and the Food & Drink Industry and the investments on research and innovation.

For SEVT, both actions and mechanisms promoting research and innovation in the food sector should become a national priority, aiming at leveraging business competitiveness and meeting current consumers needs.
