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.
Projects & Practice
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group is developing a biosensor that will quickly identify mastitis infections in dairy cows and thus improve the efficiency of the sector.
An EIP Operational Group was set up to strengthen the food chain and create short distribution channels for small and medium farms in the Madrid region.
A cooperative venture to develop a new generation energy efficient, thermo-regulated, shed for cattle housing.
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.
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.
Set up an operational group to improve the efficiency of the fruit production sector in Spain by developing new approaches for joint management of farms.
A collaborative system of precision viticulture enabling farmers to have online real time information about the health of the vineyards and make more targeted phytosanitary interventions.
