The European Commission is currently looking for 20 experts for the European Innovation Partnership  'Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability' (EIP-AGRI) to start three  new Focus Groups: 

  1. Sustainable ways to reduce the use of pesticides in pome and stone fruit production
  2. Digital tools for sustainable nutrient management
  3. Water: Nature-Based Solutions for water management under climate change

The deadline for application is Tuesday 11 January 2022. The first meetings are scheduled to be held in March 2022.

The Irish Operational Group project 'Mulkear-EIP' has already explored finding nature-based solutions for water management under climate change. The project has designed a programme to support farming activities, whilst bringing about catchment-scale improvements in water quality.
