The European Innovation Partnership for Agricultural productivity and Sustainability (EIP-AGRI) has been launched in 2012 to contribute to the European Union's strategy 'Europe 2020' for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. The EIP-AGRI brings together innovation actors (farmers, advisers, researchers, businesses, NGOs and others) in agriculture and forestry, at EU level. Together they form an EU-wide EIP network.
EIP-AGRI was set up as a new way of helping the agricultural and forestry sectors to become more productive, sustainable and capable of tackling current challenges. The EIP-AGRI focuses on forming partnerships and linking people from different professional backgrounds in the EIP-AGRI network through different types of activities.
The EIP-AGRI network is run by the European Commission (DG Agriculture and Rural Development) with the help of the EIP-AGRI Service Point. The Service Point offers a wide range of tools and services which can help you further your ideas and projects. It also facilitates networking activities; enhancing communication, knowledge sharing and exchange through conferences, Focus Groups, workshops, seminars and publications.
Agricultural Research Centre is part of the EIP-AGRI Service Point team.
Regular EIP-AGRI Newsletter and some thematic brochures are available in Estonian language in Estonian Innovation Network web page.
