The Cambridge Innovation Center is teaming up with the Basque Culinary Center in Spain to explore innovation in gastronomy.

Why it matters: The partnership supports researchers and entrepreneurs tackling some of the biggest challenges in farming, the plant-based market, restaurants and more.

Zoom in: This is CIC's first food collaboration across multiple locations and, CEO Tim Rowe argues, the first food science collaboration of its kind.

  • The partnership opens the door to networking opportunities, startup incubators and other collaborations between entrepreneurs in Boston's tech hub and academic researchers in San Sebasti├ín, a culinary destination.

CIC and Basque celebrated the partnership with a gastronomy showcase in Kendall Square.

  • The showcase included a mixologist, a Boston-based vertical farming startup, a Spanish brewery specializing in alcohol made from fermented teas and other projects.
