Project SoftGrip at “De Champignondagen” 2023

Mushroom Days

Due to the COVID pandemic, the international exhibition’s 36th edition is coming to Den Bosch, Netherlands, four years after its usual rendez vous, between May 10-12. In 2019, the tri-annual event hosted 115 exhibitors worldwide that presented products, services and technologies. The attendance was also overwhelmingly positive, with 3.282 visitors visiting from 83 countries, so expectations for the first post-covid exhibition amidst the shroom boom are high.

This year, our Horizon 2020 project seized the opportunity to be one of the event’s exhibitors, ready to present the project’s research to the mushroom industry. At our booth, you can explore our different technologies and get the chance to discuss them with our technical team.

Be sure to visit us in Zone F, area F13 and Booth 100, aka the “science island”.
