FarmDemo is a close collaboration of 3 European projects funded under Horizon 2020. They all aim to enhance peer-to-peer learning and focus on farm demonstration as a tool to boost innovation uptake. The FarmDemo Hub has been jointly developed by AgriDemo-F2F and PLAID.
The overall aim of AgriDemo-F2F is to improve understanding of effective on-farm demonstration activities. Such activities are considered as an important instrument to enhance farmer-to-farmer learning, and to connect farmers with other actors, in order to support and further develop innovation in agriculture. AgriDemo-F2F is funded by the Horizon 2020 programme (Jan 2017 - Jun 2019).
PLAID has been designed to encourage farmers and farm employees to embrace innovations in agriculture, leading to a greater sustainability of European Agriculture, by accessing high quality demonstration activities on commercial farms. The PLAID project (Peer-to-peer Learning: Accessing Innovation through Demonstration) is funded by the Horizon 2020 programme (Jan 2017 - Jun 2019).
