Catch up with our GO for Grass! online event

, -

On 22 October 2020, the GO-GRASS project held its first online event in the framework of the EU Green Week, to shed light on the overlooked potential of grasslands for the EU circular economy.

The event was the occasion for over 90 participants across the world to discover innovative solutions from five different research projects focusing on the opportunities arising from grassland and green fodder. While the morning session offered participants a journey across various technologies and demonstration sites using grassland over Europe, the afternoon session revolved around the policy and regulatory framework for grassland businesses, including a lively panel discussion focusing on the development of grass-based businesses.

If you missed the event, or would like to dig deeper into the topic, you can find the full recordings below:
