Research needs

Browse the list of knowledge needs from farming and forestry professionals, for which research may offer solutions. You may come across needs that are similar to yours, or you may find a research need that your expertise can offer a solution for.

The research needs from practice that you can search on this page were collected at EIP-AGRI workshops and other events, during specific meetings with farmers, foresters, advisers and agribusiness representatives, and through other networking activities such as EIP-AGRI Focus Groups. As part of the EIP-AGRI network, you can also share your own research needs from practice through the online 'Share' section.

After review, these submissions are then also included in an annual report that is published online: research needs report 2018 - research needs report 2019 - research needs report 2020.
