Inno4grass - Awarding Innovation

Europe’s most innovative grassland farmers are set to receive international awards for their innovation and commitment to excellence in grassland. This initiative is part of the three-year Inno4Grass Thematic Network project, a €2 million project funded by Horizon 2020. The farmers receiving awards represent eight member states in Europe and are all excelling in grassland and grassland management despite differences in climate, systems and soil types. Jendrik Holthusen tells us more....


DISARM - Innovative Solutions for Antibiotic Resistance Management

An active network dedicated to finding innovative solutions for antibiotic resistance. DISARM intends to reduce antibiotic resistance by reducing the need for antibiotics in livestock farming through focusing on disease prevention and prudent use of antibiotics.WP5 leader Laura Palczynski explains in more detail....


NEFERTITI - Learning through Farm Demos

The objective of NEFERTITI is to establish an EU-wide network of demonstration and pilot farms designed to enhance knowledge exchanges, cross fertilization among actors and efficient innovation uptake in the farming sector through peer-to-peer demonstration. Jenderick Holthusen tells us more.


Joining a TN halfway through the project

Lisa Morgans, head of the Livestock department at IfA, discusses her own experiences of joining a TN halfway through the project, having taken over from her predecessor at IfA. Lisa gives some valuable advice for how TN's could smooth this transition, ensuring that the project continues to progress at the same pace.

WINETWORK - Collaborative innovation in the wine sector

In the WINETWORK project, the approach will be implemented in ten regions from seven countries representing more than 90% of the EU wine production. The main topic addressed is the fight against diseases that jeopardise the future production potential of the EU (Grapevine Trunk Diseases and Flavescence Dorée). As they represent a threat for the economic viability of the entire sector, these topics have been previously identified as a priority by winegrowers, scientists and decision-makers.


SKIN - Focussing on the short food supply chain

SKIN is the EU Short Food Supply Chains (SFSCs) Thematic Network.Examples of SFSCs in Europe are numerous, but they are generally small in scale, limited in impact and highly fragmented. This is an obstacle for farmers and other stakeholders acting in the value chain to implement viable and efficient solutions.The aim of SKIN is to tackle such fragmentation in the access to different practice models, systematise information, empower the potential innovators and create a EU community on SFSCs, with the objective of enhancing innovation capabilities and pathways supporting the development of efficient SFSCs.


Euro Dairy - improving the viability and sustainability of milk production in Europe

EuroDairy supports the development and communication of practice-based innovation in dairy farming. It focusses on four key issues: socio economic resilience, resource efficiency, animal care, and the integration of milk production with biodiversity objectives. We chat with project co-ordinator, Ray Keatinge about what made it a success.


AgriSpin - Space for innovations in Agriculture

Far from all innovation processes succeed. In fact, many go awry even before they begin. So what makes an innovation process move forward? And what stops it? The EU-project “AgriSpin – Space for Innovations in Agriculture” seeks to find the answers to those questions and many more by identifying best practices for innovation and support systems in European agriculture.


A closer look at the EU Pig TN with Ben Williams

EU PiG aims to raise the competitiveness of the European pig industry by linking producers and sharing tried and tested best practice and innovations. Hear about the projects successes and results with project co-ordinator Ben Williams....


Looking at the successes of the 4D4F TN with Richard Lloyd

The 4D4F thematic network looked into dairy animal and environmental sensors and how collecting real-time information can help contribute to decision-making in dairy farming. The network brought together dairy farmers, dairy technology suppliers, data companies, dairy advisors, veterinarians and researchers from across Europe.


Farmer led innovation - David Main explains the work of the Hennovation TN

David Main from Hennovation tells us what made 'Hennovation' such a successful TN. Using the laying hen sector as a case study, the Hennovation project demonstrated the potential of innovation led by farmers and industry practices in two areas of concern, Injurious Pecking and End-of-Lay, during transport and at the abattoir.
