We facilitate a number of European Innovation Partnership on Agricultural Sustainability and Productivity (EIP-AGRI) projects in Wales.
The European Innovation Partnership on Agricultural Sustainability and Productivity (EIP-AGRI) was initiated in 2012 by the European Union to support the ‘Europe 2020’ initiative for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. This strategy aims to strengthen the relationship between research and innovation by offering a unique opportunity for new methodologies to be trialled by knowledgeable practitioners.
We are supporting over 20 innovation projects to go through the EIP process in Wales, with 15 projects already underway. We support farmers with their ideas and helping them navigate through the funding priorities.
EIP-AGRI programmes vary in across member states and regions; in Wales, there is grant funding of up to £40,000 available through the partnership for each project. This funding contributes to specialist’s time, hire of essential equipment, coordination of projects, communication and dissemination of project approaches, technical advice and reporting on project milestones.
EIP projects in Wales must contribute to the expansion of knowledge in at least one of the following areas of the Welsh Government’s Rural Development Programme 2014-2020:
