On the 21st of February 2023, the EU-FarmBook project (Horizon Europe) will organise the EU-FarmBook Platform Day (at the Palace of the Belgian Academies) in Brussels, Belgium (Physical Meeting Only). This event aims to optimise the interoperability of digital knowledge sharing of the EU-FarmBook and other Horizon Europe projects, the CAP-network, and national networks, as well as to foster the digital community.
The EU-FarmBook is being developed to test a big idea: “Can all the Tangible Outputs of EU-Funded Research and Innovation Projects be brought together and organized in one User-Friendly Platform to help get Practical Knowledge into the hands of Farmers, Foresters, and Advisors across Europe who need it most?” The challenges to doing this are great:

However, EU-FarmBook believes that the future of agriculture and forestry innovation in Europe is digital, and requires a vastly increased and improved digital exchange of knowledge between EU regions and Member States, as well as between different agricultural stakeholders: Researchers, Policy-Makers, SMEs, Advisors, Farmers, and Foresters.
EU-FarmBook is the result of two EU-funded Horizon 2020 “sister” projects, EURAKNOS and EUREKA, which have brought together diverse partners to work together using a multi-actor approach. Please visit the websites and check out this short video to learn more.
The day will include plenary presentations on interoperability with the EU-FarmBook platform, 3 keynote speeches as well as parallel sessions.
