Turning climate-related information into added value for traditional Mediterranean grape, olive, and durum wheat food systems


The MED-GOLD project (https://doi.org/10.3030/776467) exceeded expectations significantly. As a research and innovation project, MED-GOLD was expected to co-develop climate services at proof-of-concept (i.e., prototype) rather than real market level. By contrast, not only was MED-GOLD able to demonstrate the added value of the pilot climate services, but it also addressed the replicability and marketability side of the services to the point that major European and international institutions showed interest in the MED-GOLD climate services and ICT platform, creating real business opportunities during the project lifecycle and beyond the duration of the project.
