Workshop on checks and management of agricultural land in IACS

May 28 2018
May 30 2018

The 2018 JRC workshop on checks and management of agricultural land in the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS) will be organised from Monday 28 May (14:00) to Wednesday 30 May (16:00) in Vilnius, Lithuania.

The workshop is co-hosted by the Lithuanian Agricultural Information and Rural Business Centre (VIC).

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together the technical experts from the Member States and the European Commission to find appropriate solutions and foster innovative developments.

The 2018 IACS workshop will address some recurrent and persistent weaknesses that remain in some systems. Addressing these weaknesses will help to prepare the systems for the introduction of monitoring as means to substitute on-the-spot checks (OTSCs).
