European Innovation Partnerships(EIP)

European innovation partnerships provide funding for projects that address a local specific need or take advantage of a new opportunity. Instead of a top down approach to securing funding this bottom up approach looks to solve local problems with local solutions through the cooperation of farmers, scientists, advisors, NGOs and others.

The ultimate aim of these innovation partnerships is to road-test new ideas and practices which can then be used more widely by farmers and others to improve productivity, enhance resource efficiency and pursue sustainable farming practices.
