Delivering on this opportunity, CETEM has attended this forum with a poster presentation “Biotechnological development of sustainable additives for application in wood coatings” to address the needs of traditional industry to develop new innovative and sustainable products, processes and services thank to the implementation of new technologies as Key Enabling Technologies such as Biotechnology.
Paralelly, Innorenew, one of our Slovenian partner, attended the 4th Mediterranean Forum Sarajevo-Dubrovnik Constellation.
