AGRI Innovation Summit 2017

The AIS 2017 is a joint initiative of a Portuguese Consortium, the Portuguese Government, the EIP-AGRI network and the European Network for Rural Development. It will gather more than 500 farmers, rural businesses, start-ups, RDP managing authorities, national rural networks, researchers, advisors and NGOs throughout the EU with the aim of:

  • Promoting cross fertilization between multi-actor innovation initiatives, both under Rural Development Programmes and Horizon 2020.
  • Raising awareness about innovation and digitisation opportunities for agriculture and rural economies and how these may be supported under on-going Rural Development Programmes.
  • Providing input for EU innovation policies for agriculture and rural areas after 2020, following-up on Point 7 of the Cork 2.0 Declaration.
