Five new EIP-AGRI Focus Groups are to start their work in 2017. EIP-AGRI Focus Groups are temporary groups of selected experts focusing on a specific subject, sharing knowledge and experience. Each group explores practical innovative solutions to problems or opportunities in the field, and draws on experience derived from related useful projects. Each EIP-AGRI Focus Group meets twice and produces a recommendations and outcomes report.
The call for experts for the first two Focus Groups will be launched between late February and early March. The provisional titles are:
- FG 24: New practices and tools for climate adaptation and mitigation in the forest sector
- FG 25: New grazing methods
Three other focus groups are planned for the second semester: “Mitigation practices in arable farming”, “Horticulture and the circular economy” and “New ways of producing and using energy at farm level”.
If you are interested in becoming an expert member in the name of Euromontana in any of these focus groups, please contact Marie Clotteau.
