High Level Steering Board of the EIP "Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability"
To give direction for the successful development and implementation of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability, a High Level Steering Board has been appointed by Dacian Cioloş, European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development and Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, European Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, who co-chairs the Steering Board.
The High Level Steering Board consists of 42 high level personalities who represent key interests across the agricultural innovation landscape such as Member State representatives, regions, farmers' and forestry organisations, agricultural scientists, environmental and consumer organisations as well as up- and downstream actors.
The High Level Steering Board provides the EIP with guidance. It has established a Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) [390 KB] which gives strategic advice to the EIP and provides orientation on its main working areas. The SIP also specifies the potential added-value of EIP actions in a particular area, identifies bottlenecks and opportunities, and provide recommendations on how to accelerate innovation action and knowledge exchange.
DG Agriculture and Rural Development provides the function of the secretariat of the High Level Steering Board.
