The Faculty of Agrobiology, Food and Natural Resources organized the kick-off meeting of the important European project AgroServ (Integrated SERvices supporting a sustainable AGROecological transition) in the premises of the CZU Auditorium and the FAFNR Food Pavilion on 17th - 18th October.
The results of the AgroServ project, with a budget of almost EUR 15 million, will have a significant impact on the food system's future, preserving biodiversity and reducing the impact of agriculture on the climate. The consortium will work closely with farmers, industry, citizens and politicians through so-called "living laboratories" and towards creating evidence-based policies and co-developed agricultural practices.
The meeting was attended by more than 70 representatives of 42 partner organizations, 8 associated organizations and 24 associated subjects of the project, which is managed by the French CNRS (Centre national de la recherche scientifique) in the position of coordinator. CZU is involved as a representative of services for the agricultural sector with the main coordinator, Professor Lenka Kouřimská.
