The EU CAP Network Seminar “Smart circular farming to address high energy and fertiliser prices”

Two AREA ZERO projects (AgroFossilFree and HyPErFarm) contributed sharing the results for defossilisation in agriculture during the Seminar Smart circular farming to address high energy and fertiliser prices organised in Porto, Portugal on 6th-7th of December 2022. The seminar was organised by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI) and the EU CAP Network Support Facility for Innovation & Knowledge exchange | EIP-AGRI

Our event in EUSEW Extended Programme

On 22nd of September 2022, three of our members – AgroFossilFree, RES4LIVE and TheGreeFa projects organise an online event being a part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2022 (EUSEW2022) Extended Programme.

The session “Together towards energy-efficient and de-fossilised agriculture” will be organised will be focused on the current challenges of the European agricultural sector, and innovative approaches proposed by the EU-funded projects.

You will be also introduced to the solutions proposed by the three projects providing answers on how to overcome the challenges – innovative ways to increase the use of agricultural biomass for heating, technologies supporting the decoupling of fossil fuels through the integration of renewable energy sources in agriculture and livestock farming, heat and water recovery systems for greenhouses, and scalable approaches to the introduction of new efficient technologies for controlled environment agriculture. At the end, a discussion between speakers will take place about problems and future of European agriculture, and necessary steps to reach the EU’s climate goals.
