The LIAISON Project is looking for farmers, foresters and agri-food initiatives with a success story to share!

Times are changing! All across Europe the agricultural, forestry and the agri-food sectors are facing major social, economic and environmental challenges – as well as unprecedented opportunities. Rural innovation is currently one of the hottest topics of discussion from the farmhouse kitchen tables to the European Commission offices in Brussels.

The LIAISON project is launching a contest with the aim of seeking-out innovative, inspiring and ground-breaking initiatives from within farming, forestry and the agri-food supply chain. We are particularly interested in partnerships that bring together diverse expertise from collaborating partners with different backgrounds.

A jury of experts will select 15 Rural Innovation Ambassadors to receive international recognition, networking opportunities, personalised promotional material to use for future engagement and the invitation to join a prestigious award ceremony in Autumn 2019. All Rural Innovation Ambassadors also receive a movie about their project.
