Are you a professional in the field of the European farming sector? EIP-AGRI is looking for 20 experts to join its Focus Group and answer this core question: Which new on-farm practices and technologies can limit food loss? 

Farmers, advisers and researchers are welcome to share their knowledge and experience, in order to assure a concrete impact in the farming field. The aim of the Focus Group is to explore problems and opportunities of the food loss topic, and identify innovative solutions learning from previous projects’ experience. The Focus Group will meet at least twice, in a 12 to 18 months period, and the first meeting is already scheduled for 12 and 13 September 2018. On the EIP-AGRI dedicated website you will learn more about the initiative and find the application form.
