Projects & Practice
A unique example of a rural business which achieved economic profitability based on innovation and environmentally-friendly practices.
The knowledge generated in research and innovation projects is hard to access, thus it is vital to create networks for knowledge transfer between production and research.
A cheese-producing farm used RDP support to set up a new plant for producing speciality cheeses and ensure its long-term financial sustainability.
A modern hen farm producing eggs for human consumption, set up a new unit to process non commercial eggs and therefore increase its competitiveness.
A network that helps improve sustainability through farmer-led innovation. ‘Field labs’ and research grants provide farmers with skills, support and scientific backing to find solutions to the challenges which farmers face.
