EIT Food open call: Grow Workshops

Source of Funding:

EIT Food is seeking projects proposing a set of interlinked training activities to run annually from 2021 to 2023, in the EIT Food Focus Area ‘Sustainable Agriculture’.

Due to the strategic importance of engaging the farming community, the focus of the ‘Grow Workshops’ will primarily be to work with farmers, although SMEs in the first stage of food production may also be included.

Grow workshops are educational workshops/symposia on emerging trends and technologies that should also contain a network building exercise to establish regional and European networks of farmers and first stage food production SMEs, as well as encourage the adoption of new technologies by these stakeholders.

Strong links to the strategic objectives and demonstration of societal/market needs are expected to be shown, as well as clear descriptions of the competencies and skills participants will take home. Each proposal will need clearly outlined and well-shaped communication and dissemination plans.

Deadline for the expression of interest: 15 January 2021

Deadline for proposal submisson: 21 January 2021
