Paella in the Town Hall 2022
In December 2022, a highly significant event was held at the City Hall, with the aim of connecting and collaborating closely with stakeholders from Quart és Europa. During this special occasion, a welcoming atmosphere was created around a paella, where key people gathered in the community.

Workshop app Blockchain 2023
On 30 May 2023, Quart és Europa marked a milestone by holding a fundamental workshop. This event was intended to test a mobile app designed to track and verify the traceability of food products, with a specific focus on identifying their origin. Implementation is an integral part of the European CITIES2030 project, an ambitious programme supported by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 programme, with the active participation of 41 partner organisations from more than 10 European countries.
In close collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Madrid, from Quart és Europa we are promoting the development of this revolutionary mobile application based on "Blockchain" technology. Its functionality is extraordinary: it allows users to scan food products and reveal their origin. The underlying purpose is to promote the consumption of local and local products, thereby strengthening the local supply chain and promoting sustainability.
This joint effort seeks to transform the way we perceive and consume food, adding a new level of transparency and trust to the food industry. The workshop held on the aforementioned date not only represented an important step in this direction, but also underlines the importance of collaboration and innovation on the road to a more sustainable and conscious food system.
AVAASAJA, the Valencian Association of Young Farmers, based in Polinyà del Xúquer, plays an essential role as one of our key stakeholders in the CITIES 2030 project. Their collaboration is essential to share synergies and promote the application of biotechnology with the aim of enriching the mineral and nutritional quality of food grown in the fruit and vegetable industry.
At a recent meeting held at its facilities, the relevance of this technology was highlighted, which not only benefits consumers by improving the quality of food products, but also represents significant progress in improving agricultural production and sustainable development. AVAASAJA stands as a strategic partner that drives innovation in agriculture and contributes to the well-being of the community by promoting healthier and higher quality food.
The supercharged solution they promote gives agri-food industries the ability to add value to their final products through innovative fertilization and post-harvest methods. This, in turn, contributes to promoting a healthier diet and lifestyle and fostering the CITIES 2030 project.
