New application round for innovative agricultural projects in Rhineland-Palatinate

On March 17, 2021, the EAFRD Managing Authority launched the 4th funding call for the submission of project proposals for the establishment of Operational Groups (OG) under EIP-Agri in Rhineland-Palatinate. With the virtual information event on April 27, 2021, interested parties were now informed about the 4th funding call. In addition to clarifying questions on funding-related aspects, interested parties were able to share their experiences with the OGs NIKIZ, DaLea and E-Herb on success factors and pitfalls of good cooperation.

With the 4th funding call, a total of 7 million euros of EAFRD and state funds will be made available for the development of innovations to strengthen the competitiveness and sustainability of Rhineland-Palatinate's agriculture, forestry and food industry. The application deadline for potential OG is October 29, 2021.

As already in the 2nd and 3rd funding call, the IfLS supports and accompanies both the EAFRD managing authority and especially potential OGs in the formulation of the innovation projects as well as the partner search and networking. Besides Rhineland-Palatinate, the IfLS is also active as IDL for EIP-Agri in Hesse and Saxony-Anhalt.
