START OF PRODUCTION

A fourfold challenge

  • A public health issue: joint health in a population ageing context
  • An economic issue: the recruitment and training of specialised technicians and engineers
  • An environmental issue: a product obtained by natural fermentation
  • A societal issue: the replacement of current animal extractions
