Position of ERIAFF in the Farm to Fork Strategy
The European Region for Innovation in Agriculture, Food and Forestry (ERIAFF) network was constituted on 2012 as an informal partnership at the initiative of a core group of 17 European Regions, led by the Regional Government of Tuscany, which met on September 20th 2012 in Florence with a strong engagement to facilitate the integration of European policies in favour of innovation in agriculture, food and forestry areas.
ERIAFF has allowed its partners to work on themes of common interest, reaching the aggregation of 43 Regions from 13 European Union Member States.
After almost 5 years of activity, ERIAFF members developed interregional Operational Groups, which are already linked by common priorities and goals or made a considerable contribution to the Smart Specialization Strategy (S3) Agrifood Platform, launched by the European Commission.
European Commission considers ERIAFF to be a relevant and useful network.

The project (which will be developed in the Soria province (Spain) during the next four years with an investment of 1.5 million euros) aims at improving the resilience of forests towards the challenges of climate change by including adaptive measures in public and private forest management plans.
The LIFE Legal Wood project, whose main objective is to help companies adapt to the requirements of the European Timber Regulation (EUTR), has just launched a survey in different countries to compile the experience of all the agents involved in the implementation of the EUTR Regulation in those territories.
The NGEurope project is reaching its final stage. In the 32nd month of activities and during this extraordinary pandemic situation, partners adapted to diligently continue the project’s mission: support the third sector.
