The webinar: “Public policies supporting Demo Farms: expectations and potentials” has been organized under NEFERTITI project on March 15, 2021, from 02.00 PM to 04.00 PM (CET), ONLINE!

Taking stock of the NEFERTITI project experience (building on Plaid and AgridDemoF2F experiences) with Demo Farm activities, the webinar was aimed at presenting relevant project findings and understanding how public policies can improve both the role of DEMO Farms in AKIS and their peer-to-peer learning potential.

With a hundred registered participants, the webinar attracted a good number of Governmental representatives (42%) and ENRD/AKIS experts (21%), who could learn from practical experiences from the project and from two ongoing National initiatives. European Commission DG AGRI supported the discussion by introducing relevant opportunities in the new EU programming period and sharing ideas and suggestions.

The event has helped Nefertiti project to collect information and connect with relevant experts in order to prepare some analysis and policy recommendations, which will be delivered by the end of 2021.
