ATF-FEFAC-H2020 projects Stakeholder event
ATF organises each year at least 2 events on a dedicated topic, to foster knowledge exchange and engage a dialogue with a large panel of European stakeholders from the European agri-food systems (research providers, industry, farmers, policy makers, NGOs, European Technology Platforms, European initiatives…) around the role of livestock and the need to support a transition in livestock farming via R&I. In 2016 and 2019, making use of its wide network of European stakeholders, ATF supported the dissemination activities of EU-funded projects through the organisation of dissemination events targeting stakeholders.
In 2021, ATF has chosen to address the topic: “Going beyond the Feed vs Food competition: crops and animals together to address food and nutrition security” around 3 events:
 
Aims of the ATF-FEFAC-Horizon 2020 projects Stakeholder event

  • Support knowledge development and innovation;
  • Foster ownership by farmers and industries.
