UNISECO discussed at French EIP Committee meeting

On 6th of June 2018 Philippe Fleury presented UNISECO project at the French European Innovation Partnerships advisory committee : objectives, organization,  workpackages, policy and scientific stakes of UNISECO.

The French EIP committee is a steering committee involving the State (diverse officers of the French ministry of Agriculture and Food) and representatives of regional governments. It aims to manage the French implementation of the European Innovation Partnership for Agricultural productivity and Sustainability (EIP-AGRI).  Concerning UNISECO a number of interesting ideas were raised, such as the different European definitions of agroecology and the need to take this diversity  into account in Uniseco. For example in France Agroecology refers to a law and differs from other definitions. 

The programme and presentations are available on the event's page of the meeting (in French).
