Projects & Practice
A project to allow small businesses in the agricultural and forestry sectors to incorporate innovation more efficiently.
The knowledge generated in research and innovation projects is hard to access, thus it is vital to create networks for knowledge transfer between production and research.
An agricultural company used EAFRD funding to strengthen its production of green asparagus and increase its share of the national and European market.
The project has enabled the living-lab, Josenea which is focused on organic farming, to collect bio-waste from neighbours and transform it into compost to fertilise their crops, with environmental, economic and social benefits.
