The AIS 2017 is a joint initiative of a Portuguese Consortium, the Portuguese Government, the EIP-AGRI* network and the European Network for Rural Development. The summit gathered more than 500 farmers, rural businesses, start-ups, authorities managing rural development plans, national rural networks, researchers, advisors and NGOs throughout the EU.
An important aim was the cross fertilization between multi-actor innovation initiatives, both under Rural Development Programmes and Horizon 2020, and SolACE project partner Gottlieb Basch presented the SolACE project there.The project poster is available for download on Zenodo (see below); the full collection of poster is available from the AIS 2017 website.
