Participation in major public events is an important part of FOODCOIN’s mission, and we take these opportunities to promote innovations. This is a critical point in Europe, as it lacks technological startups, giving the US, China and Japan the leading positions. To resolve this problem, Europe founded European Innovation Council (EIC), which will invest 2 billion euros to groundbreaking projects in 2019-2020. Of course, it does not only include food and farmer spheres, but any cutting-edge technologies, like A.I., gene therapy, hydrogen fuel, etc
As a founder of a disruptive technological startup, FOODCOIN CEO Gregory Arzumanian
was invited to London to take part in European Innovation Council. This event took place on June, 24. During the event, Gregory Arzumanian discussed ideas and potential of funding a pilot project in Europe, and what FOODCOIN can offer to improve it.
