Pop-up stores, shops, cafés or events appear in fascinating environments and stay for a limited time period. These temporary events usually exhibit innovative products and invite people to spontaneously discover something novel and inspiring.

During Vidzeme Innovation Week you will have the opportunity to visit a Bio-based Pop-up Store, with products from all over Europe. The store will be build up at Lielā Skolas iela 6 in Cesis and be open from 24.02 – 28.2. The exact opening times are announced in the official event programme of Vidzeme Innovation Week. Entry is free of charge!

What to expect?

Inside the store you will be able to discover a variety of fascinating innovations:
• Dresses, t-shirts, scarfs and shoes made from wood, algae, citrus residues, milk protein, coffee compounds or even roses
• Food made with insects, mealworm powder, crickets and algae
• Paper and packaging made of agricultural waste, mushrooms or grass
• Cosmetic products with ingredients such as roses or snail extract
• ….and many more

Come by and discover bio-based innovation and learn about how the bioeconomy can contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This bio-based pop-up store is organized as part of the EU-project BE-Rural (www.be-rural.eu). BE-Rural has been created to support the development of the rural bioeconomy by focusing on the regional strengths. As the store is organized within the realm of an EU project, the products displayed will not be for sale.
