Setting up a ‘mobile social grocery’ where users will pay a low price for products, and may also choose free products, improving accessibility, reducing iscolation and giving families a more ‘human’ experience.
Projects & Practice
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.
GOTECFOR is an EIP-AGRI operational group that contributes to the bioeconomy by seeking to optimise the value chain of forest biomass, as a fuel for heating.
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.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from agriculture.
Setting up an EIP Operational Group that aims to enable Flemish farmers to operate small-scale anaerobic digesters more efficiently.
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.
A farm employing people with special needs set up a process line and an experimental kitchen, where non-commercial agricultural produce can be turned into new products.
An example of an initiative promoting energy efficiency that addresses climate change through targeted actions at grassroots level.
