Multi-actor projects: scientists and farmers creating solutions together

Multi-actor projects are projects in which end users and multipliers of research results such as farmers and farmers’ groups, advisers, enterprises and others, are closely cooperating throughout the whole research project period. 

The EU has allocated around one billion euros to fund around 180 multi-actor projects of interest to agriculture, forestry and rural development in the seven years of Horizon 2020 (2014-2020). Over 100 of these projects have already started.

Here below you can find the complete list of projects, organised per theme. Please note that individual projects can be linked to more than one theme.

Visit their websites, subscribe to their news, follow their social media accounts.

You can also find a short description of each theme and of related projects in the AgriResearch Factsheets.
