FERTINNOWA

In European countries, the cultivation of fertigated crops experience scarcity of water, and the intensity of cultivation poses significant risks to water quality. The main objective of the FERTINNOWA thematic network is to create a meta-knowledge database on innovative technologies and practices for fertigation of horticultural crops.

 AgriSpin

The project name reflects the overall aim of this project: to strengthen support systems in creating space for innovating farmers. Innovative farmers are everywhere, but their environment determines the rate of success. The project aims to create more space for innovations, through amplifying good examples of innovation support systems and through multi-actor learning about ways to stimulate innovation and remove obstacles.  Best practices for innovation and support systems, European agriculture, European innovation network

 

 

 

PROIntensAfrica 

 

PROIntensAfrica intends to develop a proposal for a long term research and innovation partnership between Europe and Africa, focusing on the improvement of the food and nutrition security and the livelihoods of African farmers by exploring and exploiting the diversity of pathways to sustainable intensification of African agro-food systems.  African agriculture, Improvement of the food and nutrition security, Sustainable intensification of African agro-food systems

Ask Valerie

Valerie is a EU FP7 project which is coming to a close. It has developed as one of its deliverables a virtual adviser portal supported by a huge compendium of fact sheets and scientific publications. The portal can be accessed through  the soon to be launched Ask Valerie portal. Knowledge for innovation in agriculture and forestry, Research and practice, knowledge platform

 

 

 

ReMIX

ReMIX is a H2020 multi-actor project that will allow designing cropping systems based on agro-ecology for the benefit of farmers and the whole EU agricultural community. ReMIX will exploit the benefits of species mixtures to design more diversified and resilient agro-ecological arable cropping systems. Based on a multi-actor approach, ReMIX will produce new knowledge that is both scientifically credible and socially valuable in conventional and organic agriculture.

DiverIMPACTS

The overall goal of DiverIMPACTS - Diversification through Rotation, Intercropping, Multiple Cropping, Promoted with Actors and value-Chains towards Sustainability - is to achieve the full potential of diversification of cropping systems for improved productivity, delivery of ecosystem services and resource-efficient and sustainable value chains. Improved productivity, Sustainable value chains, Case studies

 

 

LEGVALUE

Participatory project, open to the engagement of stakeholders in the pulse and legume industry in Europe. The objectives of LEGVALUE are; to define platforms for change that can help deliver greater EU self-sufficiency in vegetable protein production; to identify opportunities for innovation, adding value to markets and all participants in the value chains and; to recognise opportunities to influence change, be they at commercial, research or at policy level. Legume value chains, Vegetable protein production, profitable legume and pulse production in the EU

SmartAKIS

SmartAKIS is an H2020 project which has rapidly gathered a very useful database of digital technologies  related to the agriculture sector. The database is heavily populated with potential solutions to lots of agronomic, environmental and supply chain issues aimed at farmers, advisers, researchers and  ICT professionals. You should register and see what’s there and submit your own technology adding to the 1,200 technologies already entered on the database.

IWMPRAISE

Integrated weed management (IWM) is the way to go for sustainable and resilient agriculture. IWMPRAISE is a Horizon 2020 project that will support and promote the implementation of IWM in Europe. The project aims to demonstrate that IWM supports more sustainable cropping systems that are resilient to external impacts and do not jeopardise profitability or the steady supply of food, feed and biomaterials.
