CAP funds in Belgium help convert waste grass into superfood algae.
A CAP-funded cooperation project to strengthen the competitiveness of agricultural companies that minimise nutrient leakage, thereby contributing to the long-term goal of minimising agricultural nutrient leakage in the Baltic Sea by 2045.

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.
The BeeScanning app combines the use of artificial intelligence and smartphones, enabling beekeepers to easily detect Varroa mites and reduce the risk of death in their bee communities.
