Modelling tool to give value to food residual streams from agriculture.
CBE JU is proud to announce the winners of the #CBEimpact photo competition 2023. 20 CBE JU-funded projects, both ongoing and completed, had accepted this year’s challenge to showcase their remarkable impacts through the lens of high-quality photos and videos. Winners of seven competition categories will receive an entry ticket to the EFIB conference on 24 and 25 October in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
The competition participants had submitted 95 captivating visuals across five distinct categories, each focussing on a specific aspect of the project, such as the impact or the diverse range of applications. The sixth category welcomed short videos, while the winner of the seventh category was selected by the vote of the CBE JU community on LinkedIn.
The competition jury, composed of experts from the European Commission, the Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC), and the CBE JU Programme Office, assessed the entries based on criteria related to their link to CBE JU, creativity, quality, and image composition.
