In relation to the publication of the 2021 Calls for proposals for grants for information provision and promotion measures concerning agricultural products, DG Agriculture and Rural Development and the Consumers, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency (Chafea) are organising the annual Info day online.
This year the Info day will take place over two days, on 28th and 29th January. The first day will be dedicated to policy aspects. Speakers from the European Commission will discuss the future of the promotion policy, its link to the Farm to fork strategy and the upcoming policy review. They will also present the priorities of the 2021 Annual work programme.
The second day will focus on practical aspects and major changes related to the new calls. The participants will also have the opportunity to listen to presentations by external experts and projects’ coordinators on several challenging aspects, such as how to construct communication campaigns in the context of the COVID19 pandemic, factoring in public health restrictions, or how to develop communication campaigns on EU sustainable production and sustainable consumption, looking into challenges and expectations, with examples and key learnings.
As part of this event, matchmaking sessions dedicated to interaction between potential project partners are organised with a view to submitting multi-beneficiary proposals.
