Tender for EIP Network Facility
The Groupe de Bruges has given support to Schuttelaar & Partners to enter the tender for the setting up and management of the new network facility for the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on ‘Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability’. The bid for the tender was submitted on October 15. At the beginning of April it became clear that the bid was won by the Flemish Land Agency (Vlaamse Land Maatschappij).
The EIP working group of the Groupe de Bruges will now focus on creating or giving support to operational groups as part of the Rural Development Programmes for the new period.
Follow up of E-Learning Course on the CAP
Following the success of the E-Learning Course on the CAP, the Groupe de Bruges is currently trying to find the funds to develop a complete update of the course and to make the course suitable for Smartphones. Unfortunately the application for a grant from the European Commission under the Information measures relating to the common agricultural policy was rejected. The Groupe de Bruges is currently assessing other possibilities.
