Conference on scientific support to agriculture

The Presidency presented to the ministers the main outcomes of a high-level conference "Scientific support to agriculture: competitiveness, quality and sustainability" which took place in Athens on 23 April 2014 (10874/14).
In the future, the agricultural productivity needs to be increased in order to ensure food security for a growing population. In addition, biomass production has also to be raised in order to produce energy and industrial products. Both of these challenges have to be faced bearing in mind the uncertainty caused by the impacts of climate change and the general acceptance that expansion of agriculture must be achieved through an approach that also encompasses sustainability of our environment and natural resources.
The conference was organised jointly by the Hellenic Presidency and the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) with the aim of stimulating debate and improving the science-based understanding of these challenges.
