The National Platform AgroBioFood Nitra was established in 2016 on the basis of the Memorandum of Cooperation between the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra, National Agricultural and Food Centre and Bioeconomy Cluster.
The platform links education, research and business, i.e. the entities of the knowledge triangle; contributes to the promotion of innovation and to the transfer and implementation of R&D results and creates the conditions for engaging in international cooperation projects, transnational consortia, as well as in research and innovation activities and transfer of knowledge into practice.
The platform is accepted by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic as an official representative of the Slovak Republic in relation to European and international initiatives and programmes.
Thanks to the effort of the Platform, Slovakia became one of the five founding Member States in the European consortium “Food, Nutrition and Health Research Infrastructure” (FNH-RI).
