We are thrilled to announce that IRRIOT’s idea got recognized by the Swedish Department of Agriculture, which granted us initial financial support for setting up an Operational Group, which will work in the field of innovations and sustainability in agricultural sector and farming. The main task of the group is to identify major problems farmers facing in Sweden and also globally, define the project scope, prepare project plan, budget, develop pilots, to choose technology and partners for research, production, etc.
The results of the work of Operational Group will be the application to receive rural development funding from The agricultural European Innovation Partnership (EIP-AGRI) programme.
This development is possible thanks to the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe investing in rural areas. More information about the fund could be found here.
