EIP Practice Abstract Format:
Short summary for practitioners in English on the (final or expected) outcomes (1000-1500 characters, word count – no spaces).This summary should be as interesting as possible for farmers/end-users, using a direct and easy understandable language and pointing out entrepreneurial elements which are particularly relevant for practitioners. Research oriented aspects which do not help the understanding of the practice itself should be avoided.
The overall objective of AGFORISE Project is to create a cluster-cluster co-operation platform in the agrofood sector by a group of 13 stakeholders from the three leading agrofood regions in Europe: Mersin (Turkey), Emilia Romagna (Italy) and Murcia (Spain) which will maximise capacity for research and benefit from research infrastructure through complementariness and synergy, so as to contribute for sustainable development, prosperity, economic growth and global competitiveness of the regions.In this content the specific objectives are:
• Strengthening a sustainable dialogue between the participant Agrofood clusters,
• Creating an R&D&I Strategy Dialogue & Cooperation,
• Enhancing Trade & Investment opportunities in Agro-food sector,
• Maintaining sustainability of cross-collaboration between the participant regions,
• Stimulating utilization from national/EU R&D funds.

Pearls, Puzzles, Proposals? Pearls: Thanks to the project more than 500 researchers mobilized. Puzzle: AGFORISE project’s central focus was on the creation of a Common Agro-food Platform between the participant regions, I would like to know how ofteh this platform is used? Proposal: If trade activities could be supported more with the help of
Joint Action Plan, Agro-food policies proposed to the ministry may help raise awareness of the public organisations and policy makers.
