Project Aims :

It is known that Europe developing countries structural problems in agriculture sector are labor, land, water, capital, data inadequacy, agriculture-environment relation and lack of R&D. Based on this fact, following actions must be taken;

  3. Taking quick action when transfering all kinds of information related to agricultural innovation (technological or legal regulations etc.) to the agriculture sector

Empowering Young Farmers; Agriculture and Innovation Center project has been prepared based on these 3 specific questions. We will establish an agricultural and innovation center with national and international public, civil society, academia and private sector partnership within the project. The center will contribute to rural development in a sustainable way by supporting young farmers in a comprehensive manner. It will support the EU agriculture policies. It will transfer international good practices. Also, it will produce innovative technological studies and ensure that it is applied locally.
