About this event

*Please note the change of venue*

This conference, organised by the National Rural Network (NRN) on behalf of the Department of Agriculture Food and the Marine (DAFM), will bring farmers, researchers, farm advisers and policymakers together to discuss successful innovative approaches towards agri-environmental protection and sustainability of farms across Ireland through EIP-AGRI’s locally-led, farmer-centred approach, and discover the numerous lessons learned to date over the course of the Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2014-2020 (extended to 2022).

As well as hearing about the ‘on-the-ground’ experiences of featured EIP-AGRI Projects on the day, a representative from the Department of Agriculture Food and the Marine (DAFM) will explain where EIP-AGRI sits within the new CAP Strategic Plan (2023-2027) and the conference will also look ahead to inspire the future of EIP-AGRI in Ireland through various thematic break-out groups involving those in attendance.

Minister of State in the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Senator Pippa Hackett, will open the event.

An EIP-AGRI Operational Group Project exhibition will also be on display at this event.

The EIP-AGRI initiative was set up by the European Commission to promote innovation and foster sustainable growth within the agri-food sector and rural economy through a multi-actor approach involving farmers, researchers, advisors and agri-businesses. In Ireland, 57 EIP-AGRI Operational Groups Projects have now been funded by the DAFM.

Lunch and light refreshments will be served.
