News: AgriLink kickoff meeting

The AgriLink kickoff meeting took place on June 15 and 16, 2017, in Paris, France

At the first AgriLink2020 Consortium meeting, in Paris, held in June 2017, 46 persons attended the meeting: 40 AgriLink2020 consortium members, representing all 16 partners of the consortium, and 6 International Advisory Board members.

Inge Van Oost (European Commission DG AGRI R&I unit), gave an introduction to present DG AGRI’s expectations about our project and the dissemination of its results within the Horizon 2020 framework. 

Afterwards, the agenda focused on preparation of the work to be done by the consortium over the 1st year. In particular, workshops were organized:

– to identify shortlists of cases in the 8 innovation areas that could be implemented in various regions.
– for WPs1, 2, 3 and 6, to review the methodology to be implemented in each of them, and produce a SMART action plan, which were presented in a plenary session on the 2nd day of the meeting.

The Advisory Board members were invited to all the above workshops, and they provided their feedback on the workshops and the overall project during a roundtable on the 2nd day of plenary session.

The kick-off meeting of AgriLink2020 was very successful: all the actions discussed in the meetings were quickly implemented, leading to an intense stream of activities in the following months.
