Save the date! FarmDemo Conference will be held on May 21, 2019 in Brussels! The conference will be organised by NEFERTITI, PLAID and AgridemoF2F projects. Join the European Community of Demonstration Farms! 

FarmDemo is a close collaboration of 3 European projects funded under Horizon 2020. They all aim to enhance peer-to-peer learning and focus on farm demonstration as a tool to boost innovation uptake. The conference will take place in Brussels on 21st May.

AgriDemo-F2F and PLAID focus on understanding the role of European commercial demonstration farms and prepare for more connectivity between actors involved in on-farm demonstrations. These projects develop a geo-referenced online inventory of demonstration farms and build an online FarmDemo-Hub community.

NEFERTITI focuses on the establishment of 10 interactive thematic networks covering the 3 main agricultural sectors: animal production, arable farming and horticultural production. They bring together 45 regional hubs of demo-farmers and innovation actors – advisers, cooperatives, NGOs, industry, education, researchers and policy makers. The output of AgriDemo-F2F and PLAID will be used as input to set up 3 annual campaigns of on-farm demonstrations.
