SOILdarity at the EIP-AGRI Brokerage event

We were among the 80 selected participants attending the Brokerage Event organised by the EIP-AGRI on 8-9 June 2022. The focus of the event was the EU Mission: A Soil Deal for Europe.

It was a good opportunity to exchange views and ideas with experts and peer projects and do it in person.

We had the chance to go through the open topics on the EU Mission Soil, funded by Horizon Europe and engage in group discussions on the concept and implementation of living labs and lighthouses in the context of the EU Soil Mission.

Besides, we visited the fields of Praktijkpunt Landbouw Vlaams-Brabant (Practice Center for Agriculture in the Flemish Brabant), a governmental agency responsible for practice-oriented agricultural research.

This event offered matchmaking sessions through face-to-face meetings and networking amongst farmers, advisors, researchers, and other relevant stakeholders to support the preparation of proposals for the EU Mission ‘A Soil Deal for Europe’ call that was launched in May 2022.

Additionally, the activity created conditions for exchanging knowledge and innovative ideas and practices (living labs and lighthouses), that may inspire potential applicants to take part in the next EU Mission call.

We are sure it won’t be long until we will start seeing collaborations thriving!
