MD.net main objective is to strengthen exploration of the MD according the UNESCO Med Diet Convention, blending comprehensive MD concepts with innovative tools. The project will use both traditional and creative measures (as sharing economy) starting cooperation of quadruple helix stakeholders in order to lift the MD economy to new quality levels.
Project approach consists of blocks of activities never tried before in MD sectors:
MD.data generating share knowledge and strategies (WP3)

MD.InC boosting creativity and innovation in MD economy (WP4)
MD.Brain establishing co-working trainings for MD innovation (WP4)
MD.GOV – Living labs developing integrated activities (WP3,4,5,6).
