IACS autumn 2020 Webinar

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the JRC had to cancel the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS) workshop planned in Stuttgart and postpone the 26th MARS Conference (scheduled to be held in Barcelona) until conditions improve.

Nevertheless, JRC activities on IACS did not stop during this period. In collaboration with Member States who adopted checks by monitoring (CbM) and with DG AGRI, we developed several solutions, methodologies and tools. It is now time to share these findings among our IACS community members.
