MED-GOLD Final Showcase 2022


The MED-GOLD project held its two-day Final Showcase event online on 29-30 March 2022, with more than 200 participants. The attendees had the opportunity to learn about the climate services developed in the project and how they can help the agriculture sector face the challenges posed by climate change.

The first day of the event focused on the co-production approach used in MED-GOLD for the development of climate services together with users, while the second day focused on the legacy of the project and its relevance for society, the agri-food sector and beyond.
