In response to the seasonal work force crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, this project helped to provide counselling and guidance services related to employment issues via multiple communication channels.
Projects & Practice
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.
A conventional dairy farmer in Denmark used RDP support to build a new stable which enabled reduced production costs and improved animal welfare conditions.
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from agriculture.
Expanding the production capacity of a pig farm in Denmark, while improving animal welfare and reducing NH3 emissions.
Rural Development Progamme investment support enabled a conventional broiler farmer to construct a new energy efficient broiler house.
Using biomass residues to produce a fertiliser, which is then used to grow trees, and will, over time, improve soil quality, has led to significant financial savings for nature conservation organisations and tree nurseries.
The project has created entirely new operating models to improve the well-being of agricultural entrepreneurs and how they can cope with difficulties.
