The European Innovation Partnership for Agriculture Productivity and Sustainability (EIP-AGRI) was launched in 2012 to contribute to the ‘Europe 2020 Strategy’ of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.  As of October 2022, 57 EIP-AGRI Operational Group projects have been funded by Ireland’s Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) and the EU under the Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2014-2020 (Extended to 2022). See breakdown below:

  • 2 Themed EIP-AGRI Operational Group Projects.
  • 21 Open Call 1 (Stream A) and Open Call 2 (Steam B) EIP-AGRI Operational Group Projects.
  • 24 Locally-led Farm and Community Biodiversity EIP-AGRI Operational Group Projects.
  • 8 Farm Health, Safety and Wellbeing EIP-AGRI Operational Group Projects.
  • 2 Rewetting of Farmed Peatlands EIP-AGRI Operational Group Projects.

These successful projects have been developed by multi-actor Operational Groups, which bring together actors such as farmers, researchers, advisors and agri-businesses to identify innovative solutions to particular challenges facing the agricultural, food and forestry sectors.
