PRODECA participates in two European Projects: EUREGA AND MD.NET
Project logos

PRODECA is involved in a number of European projects related to food and gastronomy, as well as to business competitiveness in European regions. This enables us to forge links to other European organisations, institutions, universities, public administrations, associations, local and national companies, and, more broadly, opinion leaders, who contribute to European policy-making. It is also an excellent opportunity to share knowledge with partners from other European countries with a view to boosting the competitiveness of Catalan agri-food companies.

EUREGA's main objective is to have EU regional and national strategies and policies included and recognised as both a cultural asset and strong element in regional cultural identity. This should lead to creating stronger and more resilient regions by protecting and stimulating gastronomy as part of their cultural heritage and identifying new opportunities for economic development. EUREGA started in June 2018 and will end on May 2022.

The main objective of MD.net is to explore the opportunities afforded by the MD in keeping with the UNESCO Convention on the Mediterranean Diet, which combines comprehensive concepts of the MD with innovative tools. The project will use traditional and creative measures and cooperation among interest groups to raise the economy of the MD to new quality levels. MD.net has started in February 2018 and will finish it in January 2022.
