First European Innovation Partnership meeting

A first meeting of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) "Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability", which was set up to help meet the challenges of food security, sustainable resource management and environment preservation, was organized by the European Commission on February 21.
It brought together 42 members, including Member State representatives at ministerial level, farm and forestry organisations, environmental and consumer organisations, advisory services, agri-business, and scientists, in order to ensure faster transfer of innovative research results from science into practice, encourages the sharing of knowledge and experience, and will help provide more systematic feedback to the scientific community about what research is needed.
The High Level Steering Board was co-chaired by Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Dacian Cioloş and Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, Máire Geoghegan-Quinn.
This first meeting got the EIP underway by establishing a strategic implementation plan and providing orientation on its main areas of work.
