EUFRAS is participating as 3rd party in NEFERTITI to support the project-partners with dissemination of results to all EUFRAS members and to organize cross-visits between initiators of farm-demonstration activities to intensify innovation by peer-to-peer learning. EUFRAS members from Croatia, Poland, France, Germany, Bulgaria, Finland, the Netherlands, Ireland and Spain are NEFERTITI-project partners.
The H2020 NEFERTITI project (Networking European Farms to Enhance Cross Fertilisation and Innovation Uptake through Demonstration) will be launch on the 16th & 17th of January in Almeria.
NEFERTITI is a unique 7 M€ Network (selected under Horizon 2020, Societal Challenge 2, RUR 12-2017 call) comprising 32 partners and coordinated by ACTA, the head of Network of the French Agricultural Technical Institutes.
NEFERTITI establishes 10 interactive thematic networks and brings together 45 regional clusters (hubs) of demo-farmers and actors involved (advisors, NGOs, industry, education, researchers and policy makers) in 17 countries. NEFERTITI focuses on creating added value from the exchange of knowledge, actors, farmers and technical content between networks in order to boost innovation uptake and to improve peer to peer learning and network connectivity between farming actors across Europe. In the end, it all contributes to a more competitive, sustainable and climate-smart agriculture.
NEFERTITI addresses 10 themes that have been chosen based on key concerns of the farming communities. Together they cover a balanced range of topics in the three main agricultural sectors: animal production, arable farming and horticultural production.
A monitoring and learning program supports the systematic extraction of lessons learnt, lessons to be shared with wide audiences including AKIS (Agriculture Knowledge and Innovation Systems) actors and public authorities. A web based platform unlocks the experience, actors, demo details and the related content for widespread sharing, enhanced by the dedicated production of relevant material (including high-quality videos) in each partner's language. NEFERTITI will engage a policy dialogue with EU Regions to meet farmers and policy makers' interests in view of the networks' sustainability.
More information will follow soon on the NEFERTITI website and the social medias.
NEFERTITI has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme for Research & Innovation under grant agreement n°772705.
