The European Commission co-finances projects to inform about the common agricultural policy (CAP). Any person or legal entity such as associations or national authorities can participate in the call for proposal, published once a year before 31 October.
TV features on agriculture and innovation, farm visits, information campaigns, audiovisual and media activities, apps for smartphones and tablets to facilitate the access to information about CAP…- the European Commission has already co-financed a wide variety of different projects.
European rules set out two simple aims for all information measures:
- to raise awareness of European Union agriculture and rural development policy among the European public, focusing on what it does and how it does it
- to inform farmers and the wider rural community what the policy is doing for them on the ground
