About QOOT, Lebanon Agri-Food Innovation Cluster
QOOT, Lebanon Agri-Food Innovation Cluster is envisioned to be a catalyst for the Lebanese Agri-Food industries to ensure they are among the most innovative in the world.
One of the main pillars of the Agrytech Program, Lebanon’s Agri-Food Innovation Hub, is to create a platform where both start-ups and existing companies in the Lebanese agri-food sector can come together and work on increasing the competitiveness of the sector and placing Lebanon back on the innovation map, both at regional and international levels.
This interaction and collaboration is referred to as a cluster, with the main objective of building synergies and promoting for a smarter agri-food sector, both nationally and internationally.
The main advantages that companies gain from being part of a cluster are ease of access to expertise, skilled workers, input suppliers, information channels, and linkages to new markets.
Ultimately, this results in improved competitiveness, as seen with different clusters around the world.
QOOT is envisioned to become the driving force of the agri-food innovators, industry leaders and expert community by
- Stimulating Innovation
- Reinforcing Mutual Exchanges
- Setting International Legitimacy
