EURAF is indirectly involved trough its members in ISA at the University of Lisboa (PT) and AGROOF (FR).
The project MIXED recognises that efficiency and resilience must be developed with farmers and in the contexts in which farms, farmers’ organizations, service suppliers and value chain actors operate.
During the four years the project will last, the plan is to develop many different networks across Europe, covering a wide range of different mixed agricultural and agroforestry systems. And in addition to the learning that will take place between the partners, it will also create a foundation of scientific knowledge about the various methods and systems that can help to develop the European agricultural sector in a sustainable direction.
