Kicking-off the new year’s events in Brussels

Represented by the project’s Communications Manager, Grigoris Chatzikostas, from our partner organisation Foodscale Hub, Data4Food2030 was live at the event to share his insights and support this unique initiative and its mission.


The GAIA launch event was hosted by the Member of the European Parliament Irène Tolleret, who gave us the opportunity to kick-off the activities of the Alliance and honoured us by delivering a keynote speech on the importance of supporting gender equality. Representing the Alliance’s partners, we also had the opportunity to attend brief speeches from Lorena van de Kolk from Schuttelaar & Partners, Enrica Belfiori from CEMA, Anneleen De Visscher from ILVO, Gonneke Gros Gerkema from Grodan and Cheryl Nolan from VistaMilk SFI Research Centre. It was a an excellent occassion to gather with like-minded people and contribute to GAIA’s mission!
