The regional working group from Cataluña has been established and held its inaugural meeting on May 30th, 2023. The working group comprises members from the quadruple helix, encompassing universities, representatives from the social sector (such as farmer associations and the board of sustainable livestock management in the region) as well as members from a private fertilizer industry, the regional government, consultancies specializing in fertilizer regulation, and private entrepreneurs in the areas of livestock and waste management.
The meeting took place online, and the BETA Center, the facilitator of the regional working group, provided an introduction to the Novafert project. The participants discussed the future steps and expectations of the regional group members, and shared preliminary information necessary for conducting a SWOT analysis.
The next meeting will be held before the summer break and our first regional workshop will be organised in November.
