Cooperation on a pilot project that could provide a more viable and sustainable alternative to manage river banks.
Two RDP funded projects enabled a company specialised on biomass heating to grow by financing the purchase of mobile wood chipper and later on a pelleting system.
An association used EAFRD funding to help preserve chestnut woods in Italy and boost growers’ income by buying new equipment and coordinating the supply chain.
EAFRD investment support was used for the construction of the new cowshed for dairy cows. This helped increase milk production along with improved animal wellfare.
