ABOUT US

The Network of European Regions for Innovation in Agriculture, Food and Forestry (ERIAFF) is an informal association of regional Authorities that was established in 2012 in Florence (Tuscany, Italy).

The Network is currently participated by 50 member Regions and 38 observers from 21 European countries.

ERIAFF allows its members to work on themes of common interest and has established a number of thematic working groups which are coordinated by the most committed members.

The participation to the Network and its Working Groups is free and based on a voluntary commitment.

ERIAFF accepts as member any Regional Authority (or a delegated Public organization) that commits to the objectives of the ERIAFF Joint Statement (2012) and Declaration (2013). Regional Authorities may also be accepted as observers.

Main objectives

  • facilitate the integration of European policies in favour of innovation in the areas of agriculture, food and forestry;
  • improve the performance of the European Innovation Partnership for Productivity and Sustainability in Agriculture by acting as facilitators of information flows and relationships between stakeholders in their Regions and across the EU;
  • develop interregional innovation projects and EIP AGRI Operational Groups.
