Cluster 6 - EU-FarmBook



EU-FarmBook: a EU-wide exchange platform for sustainable agriculture and forestry – 29 partners – 7 years

Project description

An online, open-source, European knowledge reservoir about agriculture and forestry practical solutions was developed by two EU projects EURAKNOS and EUREKA. This new digital platform, called EU-FarmBook, makes it easy to search for and share practical knowledge about farming and forestry from regional, national and EU research and innovation projects. This is the first long-term, EU-wide digital knowledge reservoir. The EU-FarmBook platform will connect many AKIS actors, provide training materials as input to the advisors and serve education institutes.

In terms of dissemination, EU-FarmBook will form links to traditional channels, such as agricultural journals. The overall aim is for the platform to stimulate knowledge exchange, users interaction and collaboration, ultimately resulting in innovation for environmentally, socially and economically sustainable agriculture and forestry.


The aim of the EU-FarmBook project is that the concept of the platform will evolve to an exploitable product that will stimulate the exchange and collaboration between the AKIS actors at an EU wide scale. Targeted and efficient management of data and information to support agriculture and forestry practice from different sources will not only support the CAP but also the Green Deal and Farm to Fork objectives and targets, ultimately resulting in innovation for an environmentally, socially and economically sustainable agriculture and forestry
