The TRACE-RICE project was presented last 21st of March at "Dare2Change", Innovation- Driven Agrifood Business ( in the Congress Centre of Super Bock Arena Porto, Portugal. The event was focused on the challenges of the agri-food sector from technological innovation to new business models and brought together three hundred of stakeholders to increase the synergies between the academic and the business sectors.

Five posters with TRACE-RICE results were presented:

Improvement of GABA content by rice solid-state fermentation

Preliminary approach based on machine learning algorithms for commercial classification of rice types

Detection, quantification, and mitigation of mycotoxins in rice

Identification of molecular rapid methods for hidden insect infestation determination in rice

Assessment of a Biochip Immunoassay for Multi-Mycotoxins Screening in Rice

The event provided a great knowledge sharing and an intense debate among the various players on future challenges in the agri-food sector and also a useful network for the project development.
