The preconference targets policymakers, academics, farmers, advisors, food industry, banks/funders, and other stakeholders. Participants are invited to listen state of the art insights about the role of research and the implementation of the EIP Agri in various regions in Europe, as well as sharing their experience about ongoing initiatives, including bringing information from their research and innovation projects through a dedicated poster session.
The European Union's strategy 'Europe 2020' for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth sets the strengthening of research and innovation as one of its five main objectives. Following this approach, the CAP post 2013 place a large emphasis on innovation. Among other initiatives, the European Innovation Partnership was launched in 2012 and actions aimed at boosting innovations play a key role in the Rural Development Programmes 2014-2020. Measure 16.1, launched in several countries/regions of the EU, implements Operational Groups. Specific objectives of the preconference are:
- presenting the state of the art about research and innovation role in agriculture
- discuss the role of the EIP in the wider context of research and innovation in agriculture;
- having a better insight into local implementations of the Operational Groups and Innovation at Member State level and in the framework of regional Rural Development Plans 2014-2020;
- understanding the interactive approach between researchers, policy makers and market actors supported by the EIP.
