Laure Latruffe, LIFT coordinator from INRA Rennes, participated in the UNISECO kick-off meeting where potential fields of common activities were discussed. 

     

Similar engagement took place with the participation of Gerald Schwarz, UNISECO Coordinator from TI, at the kick-off meeting of LIFT. Synergies will be sought between the two project such as in dissemination actions, exchange of materials, cross referencing in project newsletters, establishing links between websites and social media channels. The teams working on relevant topics will be developed to ensure coherent and mutually complimentary communications whenever appropriate (e.g. farming typologies).
