EUROCROP is a coordination action of the 6th Framework Programme (FP6-2004-SSP-4), involving the stakeholders and actors concerned by arable crops in Europe, which aims to propose research orientations to improve the competitiveness of the sector at the 2015 horizon. To reach this objective, EUROCROP developed 4 scenarios for 2015 and examined the main challenges for the arable crops sector. The EUROCROP project ends in December 2008 and will hold its final conference in Brussels in October 2008 to present its recommendations for arable crops research and collect comments.
Key words: arable crops / competitiveness / scenarios / research strategy
The complete results of the project and final recommendations will be presented and discussed in the EUROCROP Conference, next October 2008.
The EUROCROP conference will be organized in collaboration with the European Economic and Social Committee. It will take place in Brussels, on next 17th October 2008. www.eurocrop.cetiom.fr.
