Eco-schemes & CAP Reform: Making the European Green Deal Real Roundtable
Eco-schemes & CAP Reform: Making the European Green Deal Real
Date & Time:
Thursday, April 22 at 15:00 CET
What has been Covered:
To support reform of the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and its role in reaching the Green Deal targets, the European Commission recently published the first list of potential agricultural practices for which farmers could receive payments under the eco-schemes of the revised CAP.
In this roundtable, we'll ask European policymakers, farmers, and industry how we can make sure there is real impact in the field from these and similar practices.
Join us in a conversation about the renewed emphasis on agricultural practices, the role of agrifood players in the debate, and the implications for biostimulants and other inputs.

Fostering resilient, sustainable and dynamic agriculture and food production in Europe: the roles of innovation and policy
In this conversation with Alexandra Nikolakopoulou, Head of the Farm to Fork Strategy Unit at the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (SANTE), we will discuss the EU's Farm to Fork Strategy, Green Deal, and changes to the Common Agriculture Policy, as well as how they interact with the COVID recovery plan. Luca Bonini, EBIC’s president (CEO of Italpollina), will bring the perspective of innovators and entrepreneurs into the debate as we consider how to “rebuild better” European food and ag systems . The conversation will be moderated by Kristen Sukalac (Consulting Partner at Prospero & Partners).
