Join the European Community of Demonstration Farms!

*Farm Demo is a close collaboration between three European projects funded under Horizon 2020. They all aim to enhance peer-to-peer learning and focus on farm demonstrations as a tool to boost innovation uptake:

AgriDemo-F2F and PLAID focus on understanding the role of European commercial demonstration farms between actors involved in on-farm demonstrations. These projects are developing a geo-referenced searchable online inventory of demonstration farms. This inventory will build an online Farm Demo-Hub community. New registrations and members are always welcome here!

NEFERTITI focuses on the establishment of 10 interactive thematic networks covering the three main agricultural sectors: animal production, arable farming and horticultural production. They bring together 45 regional hubs of demo-farmers and innovation actors - advisors, cooperatives, NGOs, industry, education, researchers and policy makers. The outputs of AgriDemo-F2F and PLAID will be used as input to set up three annual campaigns of on-farm demonstrations.
