Designing the path: A strategic approach to EU agricultural research and innovation
Conference: 26-28 January 2016, Brussels, Charlemagne building


Are you interested in shaping the future of EU agricultural research and innovation? Take part in the conference organised by the European Commission, which will take place on January 26-28 in Brussels, in the presence of Commissioners Phil Hogan and Carlos Moedas.

European agriculture and rural areas face a number of long-term challenges that can be tackled through research and innovation. The discussion on how a long-term strategy can offer solutions was kick-started at a workshop in Milan in June 2015. Several consultation activities then followed. The conference on 26-28 January 2016 brings this six-month process to a close. It will present the main elements of a strategic approach for EU agricultural research and innovation, and will discuss the different ways in which this approach could be implemented.

The programme features many interesting speakers in two plenaries and six parallel sessions. One of these parallel sessions is specifically targeted to EIP approaches and "interactive innovation".
Registration is open until Friday 15 January 2016 (or until full capacity has been reached) via this link.

The event, including plenary and parallel sessions, will also be web-streamed. The links will be made available here.
