NEFERTITI

Project NEFERTITI


Project Title : Networking European Farms to Enhance Cross Fertilisation and Innovation Uptake through Demonstration
Funding : H2020 –RUR 12 ( Rural Renaissance - Fostering innovation and business opportunities)
Duration : January 2018-january 2022
Coordination : ACTA
Status IFV : Partner (Third party of ACTA)

Summary :
NEFERTITI is a unique project that establishes 10 thematic networks bringing together regional clusters (hubs) of demo-activities and the involved actors. The project focuses on creating added value from the interactive exchange of knowledge and technical content among farmers and AKIS actors (Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems) in order to:
o    boost innovation;
o    improve peer to peer learning and
o    improve network connectivity between farming actors over Europe.

A monitoring and learning program supports the systematic extraction of lessons learnt, lessons to be shared with wide audiences including AKIS actors and public authorities. A web based platform unlocks the experience, actors, demonstration details and the related content for wide spread sharing, enhanced by dedicated production of relevant material in each language of the project ’partner

The overall objective of NEFERTITI is to establish an EU-wide highly connected network of well-specified demonstration and pilot farms, which is designed to enhance thematic knowledge exchanges, cross fertilisation among actors and efficient innovation uptake in the farming sector through peer-to-peer demonstration of techniques.
To achieve this goal, project will achieve the following objectives:
At the support level:
o    Developing Dynamic Action Plans by identifying the needs of demonstration actors and networks in terms of knowledge and know-how for networks ‘activities taking into account the diversity of EU AKIS.
o    Supporting cycles of demo-activities and peer-to-peer learning in the regional hubs that will be established involving all relevant AKIS actors. OB is aimed at learning by doing on how to improve uptake of knowledge among farmers and improve science-practice interactions;
o    Establishing a web-based platform including knowledge reservoirs related to demo-activities including ready-to-use knowledge from other national, EU and EIP related projects organised by themes and sectors.

At the coordination level:
o    Establishing and sustaining interactive thematic networks at regional, national and EU levels by sectors and themes (and with the EIP related projects/landscape) to boost knowledge exchanges and cross fertilisation;
o    Fostering the learning process of all actors involved in demo-activities throughout the networks to identify best practices for demonstrations and interactivity between demonstrations on similar themes over Europe;
o    Improving the policy dialogue and networking the regional European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF) managing authorities to ensure the network sustainability;
o    Promoting effective use of demo-and network activities by communicating and disseminating the practical oriented outcomes adapted at local level.

ACTA, Association de Coordination Technique Agricole (France) will lead the NEFERTITI project where 25 partners from Academia, Farmers' association, Research center, extension services from across Europe will work together on this 4-year extensive project.

IFV’s role is to coordinate a thematic network on “pesticide use reduction in the production of grapes, fruits and vegetables”.
