15 The European Innovation Partnership Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability

16 The context Europe 2020 Strategy [COM (2010)2020] CAP towards 2020 [COM (2010)672] Budget for Europe 2020 [COM(2011) 500] EU 2020 flagship initiative Innovation Union [COM(2010) 546]

17 The context European Innovation Partnership (EIP): a new way to foster innovation by uniting researchers, stakeholders, Member States and policy-makers around a common societal challenge. Pilot EIP (2011): Active and Healthy Ageing EIP on Raw Materials EIP on Water EIP on Smart Cities EIP on Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability EIP-A is focussed on smart and sustainable growth in agriculture involving the entire supply chain.

18 The challenge global food demand 70% by 2050 demand for feed, fibre, biomass, and biomaterial overexploitation of natural resources, environmental damages need for innovation and research overcoming of the gap between research and practice

19 The stakeholders Partners along the whole supply chain, at different institutional and geographical levels (Member States, regions and local level) and in different sectors. Key actors: farmers, advisors, rural enterprises, scientists, environmental groups, consumers, etc. Other sectors: satellite navigation technology, biotechnology, ICT, biochemical industry, fertiliser and pesticide industry, veterinary services, food and biomass processing industry, packaging industry, and retailers.

20 The stakeholders interactive innovation model Operational Groups (bottom-up approach) common. objective innovation transfer : development, testing and application

21 The need for a EU approach EU approach - EU-wide agricultural research. Streghtening of existing instruments for innovation offered by EU framework for Rural Development smart networking EU Innovation and Research Policy cluster initiatives, large scale pilot and demonstration projects, innovation centres

22 The expected benefits Two headline targets: promoting productivity and efficiency of the agricultural sector Promoting sustainability of agriculture preserving soil functionality, water and ecosystem protection and resilience, carbon sequestration, reduction of GHG emissions, reducing energy needs, and preserving eco-system services.

23 The governance Light structure High Level Steering Board: 42 high level personalities representing Member State, regions, farmers' and forestry organisations, science, environmental and consumer organisations, etc. Sherpas: Strategic Implementation Plan, interaction with the EC

24 The Strategic Implementation Plan The Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP): identifies strategic priorities and areas of operation for the EIP-A; identifies main acting stakeholders and broader stakeholder communities, analyses bottlenecks, recommends strategic solutions for tackling bottlenecks; makes recommendations on how to pursue innovative solutions which advance productivity whilst integrating environmental and social concerns; makes recommendations on enabling conditions and success factors for the effective and efficient implementation of the EIP-A.

25 The roadmap February 29th 2012: launch of the new European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Agricultural Sustainability and Productivity [COM(2012) 79] January 8 th 2013: establishment of the High Level Steering Board January 15 th 2013: establishment of the Sherpa Group February 21 st 2013: 1 st Meeting of the Steering Board February 25 th 2013: 1 st Meeting of the Sherpa Group March 31 st 2013: First version of the Strategic Implementation Plan April 19 th 2013: 2 nd Meeting of the Sherpa Group next steps: July 11 th 2013: 2 nd Meeting of the Steering Board

26 EIP-A s priorities Bioeconomy strategy Five indicative priority areas for research and innovation have been selected on the basis of input and exchange with stakeholders and researchers: Increased agricultural productivity, output, and resource efficiency Innovation in support of the bio-based economy Biodiversity, Ecosystem services, and soil functionality Innovative products and services for the integrated supply chain Food quality, food safety and healthy lifestyles special emphasis on supporting biorefineries and on strengthening the biobased value chain through improved information flow between farmers, researchers, scientists, NGOs and Industry.
