FP4 projects success stories
16 success stories have been drawn from the Area 4 of the
FAIR programme funded under the Fourth Framework programme.
FAIR is an acronym for the fourth framework specific RTD
programme “Agriculture and Fisheries (including Agro-industry,
Food technologies, Forestry, Aquaculture and Rural Development)”.
The projects span a very wide subject area and include successes
such as instrumentation that allows water saving but maintains
crop quality; silage systems that use less fertiliser, composting
systems that overcome the problem of waste husks from olive
pressing, and information to improve the welfare of chickens.
Rural development issues are addressed by the project ‘Development
of rural areas’. This is a small selection of some
of the best projects as selected by the impact assessment
methodology use for the study.
