The European Commission's Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI), and the Support Facility 'Innovation & Knowledge exchange | EIP-AGRI' are organising the brokerage event ‘Get involved in the EU Mission: A Soil Deal for Europe’ that will take place on 8 - 9 June 2022 in Brussels.
The event aims to support the Horizon Europe call for proposals under the EU Mission: A Soil Deal for Europe. Specific objectives include improving awareness on the EU Soil Mission and its work programme 2022 and the opportunities offered under its calls, supporting future applicants in finding potential partners, and sharing further information on the call and its topics, thus contributing to improve the quality of the proposals.
The event will offer matchmaking sessions through face-to-face meetings and networking amongst farmers, advisors, researchers, and other relevant stakeholders, in order to create conditions for exchanging knowledge and innovative ideas and practices (living labs and lighthouses), that may inspire potential applicants to take part in the next EU Mission Call.
The Horizon Europe mission work programme for 2022 will be published on 12 May 2022, with a call for proposals to support the implementation of the EU Soil Mission: A Soil Deal for Europe. The info days for this call are planned for 17 and 18 May.
If you would like to participate in the brokerage event in June, apply before 22 April 2022, 23:59 CEST. You can find all information here.
