On 13 and 14 June, the “Open Innovation Challenges for FoodTech and CleanTech” workshop will be held at the San Francesco Educational Complex at the University of Siena.


The workshop aims to identify and analyze the challenges of open innovation in the field of FoodTech through the encounter between the world of agrifood and the academic world. The program includes two days of activity.

On the first day there are two workshops: one in the morning involving food companies and other FoodTech partners and one in the afternoon involving companies and institutions CleanTech.

Floramiata will tell about their CleanTech innovation experience and their commitment in improving the environmental sustainability of its activities also through the screening of “EARTH GENERATION”, a short film produced by Floramiata.

The company has set an ambitious goal on the issue of environmental sustainability and has decided to equip itself with a tool to control and monitor greenhouse gas emissions, giving life to a project that aims to achieve zero carbon dioxide emissions in the short term time, leading the company to be called the first Italian carbon-free flower nursery company.

On June 14 there will also be a visit to the Salcheto Winery in Montepulciano, where the seminar participants will have the opportunity to learn about the activities of the winery in the field of sustainability.

The workshop will end with a plenary session.


OpenInnoTrain operates in the FinTech sectors (a new financial sector that applies technology to improve or innovate financial services), Industry 4.0 (the digitalization of manufacturing industries that produces fully integrated, automated and optimized production flows), CleanTech (a range of technologies low carbon emissions aimed at providing solutions to environmental problems) and FoodTech (the application of advanced technologies such as information technology and robotics integrated with food production, packaging and distribution). OpenInnoTrain is funded by the prestigious research program and Horizon 2020 innovation of the European Commission and was recently launched at the European hub of the RMIT University of Barcelona. This is the first project that links European and Australian research to this scale within such a global network of industrial partners and academic institutions.
