Ms Michaela Skodova,


About the ‘CAP, What’s cooking?’: The ‘CAP, What’s cooking?’ Project has been built on the objective to increase and disseminate the knowledge and discussion of the reformed CAP, and to make this rather complex policy also accessible in a simple way to the general public.

The project is developed by the Groupe de Bruges in association with the Slow Food Youth Network and CEJA. Supported by the Dutch Presidency of the EU and Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs.

 Co-financed by European Commission.
