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 will gather more than 500 farmers, rural businesses, start-ups, rural development programmes (RDPs) managing authorities, national rural networks, researchers, advisors and NGOs throughout the EU with the aim of:

  • promoting cross-fertilisation between multi-actor innovation initiatives, both under RDPs and Horizon 2020
  • raising awareness about innovation and digitisation opportunities for agriculture and rural economies and how these may be supported under ongoing RDPs
  • providing input for EU innovation policies for agriculture and rural areas after 2020, following up on point 7 of the Cork 2.0 declaration

Commissioners Carlos Moedas (Research, Science and Innovation) and Phil Hogan (Agriculture and Rural Development) will speak at this event.
