Meet the most relevant Agri-Innovation Actors in Europe – and TomGEM is part of it

From October 11-12, 2017 Portugal hosts the Agri Innovation Summit 2017 (AIS) with 500 EU agri innovation actors expected.

The 1st edition of the Agri Innovation Summit is a European event to foster innovation and digitisation in agriculture and rural areas. 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 gathers 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.
