With 31 partners in our consortium, our network will cover most of the EU regions. Demonstration activities supported by the farms will directly impact local farmers in 14 Member States (Belgium, France, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom) and 2 associated countries (Serbia and Switzerland).
One of the main objectives of the project is to establish a EU-wide multi-actor network, based on (i) existing national IPM Farm Demo networks, coordinated to produce common deliverables (e.g. common formats for the description of successful IPM strategies with management details and performance at the farm level, level of pesticide use, productivity, profitability, workload) without disrupting their current operation, and (ii) new hubs of volunteer farmers motivated to evolve towards advanced IPM adoption on their whole farm, and for demonstration activities.
