European Partnership accelerating farming systems transition: agroecology living labs and research infrastructures

The partnership aims to structure and support a network of living labs and research infrastructures accelerating the transition towards agroecology throughout Europe. It will provide spaces for long-term, site-specific, multi-stakeholder and real-life experimentation, and deliver ready-to adopt practices that support farmers in understanding and implementing agroecological practices at the scale needed for positive economic, environmental and social impacts.

By 2030, the ecosystem around agroecology will be better connected at EU level, knowledge of agroecological processes will boost uptake of agroecology by farmers and the environment and the social performance of farming will be improved.
