SuperBIO Workshop: BIOACTIVE INGREDIENTES FOR FOOD AND HEALTH IN THE FRAME OF BIOECONOMY IMPLEMENTATION: challenges and opportunities

BIOACTIVE INGREDIENTES FOR FOOD AND HEALTH IN THE FRAME OF BIOECONOMY IMPLEMENTATION: challenges and opportunities

Bioactive ingredients have a wide innovation potential for food and health industry, drugged by the fact discoveries in bioactive components are escalating.
