Projects & Practice
CAP funds help identify opportunities for improving localised linen production.
A cooperation project that promotes sustainable water use and smart irrigation, contributing to the mitigation of climate change and improving the quantity and quality of crop production.
An EIP Operational Group worked on upscaling the production of Plasma Activated Water (PAW) and on demonstrating its effectiveness and cost efficiency as a sustainable nitrogen fertiliser.
Developing a Participatory Guarantee System (PGS) in the Netherlands as an alternative to formal certification for small producers operating in short supply chains.
A European Innovation Partnership (EIP) operational group established a network of farm incubators in Spain to support young farmers who do not have previous family connections or a background in farming.
This project combined state-of-the-art sensoring techniques and models with a participatory monitoring process with farmers and water authorities to create a common understanding of the main local challenges and possible solutions to enhance water quality. In addition, the process empowered individual farmers to become equal partners with water authorities as they gained knowledge and access to data. Problems with water management differ between regions, but the process of jointly collecting, learning from and acting on data can be applied across regions.
Setting up a hybrid irrigation system using solar energy to reduce energy costs and carbon dioxide emissions.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group was set up to develop new agronomic tools that will enable farmers to use pivot irrigation more efficiently.
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
