Transnational Working Group and Technical Visits on Farmers’ Innovation

From 8/11/2017 to 9/11/2017
Workshop / Conference

As part of the European project MADRE - Metropolitan Agriculture for Developing an innovative, sustainable and Responsible Economy, ANIMA Investment Network, in partnership with the Agency for Sustainable Mediterranean Cities and Territories (AVITEM), is organising a Transnational Working Group and Technical Visits on farmers' innovation.


It will be the opportunity for key stakeholders from the 6 metropolises associated with MADRE (Barcelona, Montpellier, Marseille, Bologna, Tirana and Thessaloniki) to:

  • Share real-life experiences and best practices related to urban and peri-urban farming innovation, in its broad approach (technological, marketing and organizational);
  • Discuss specific issues and identify Mediterranean specificities for urban and peri-urban farming innovation;
  • Define common solutions to the constraints and needs faced by Mediterranean metropolises;
  • Formulate policy recommendations as a basis for a Policy Paper on metropolitan agriculture in the Mediterranean;
  • Express their expectations vis à vis a transnational cluster/network on metropolitan agriculture in the Mediterranean.


The event will take place in Marseille on Wednesday 8 and in Aubagne on Thursday 9 November 2017. You can download the detailed agenda here.


The number of places is limited. You can express your interest to participate by filling in the online form here. Please explain your experience in urban agriculture farming in the "Comments" box. Your participation will be confirmed by email.


The event is part of the Mediterranean Urban Argiculture Days. A seminar (in French only) is also organised by ASTREDHOR, Cité de l’Agriculture, IAUR and TELEMME on Tuesday 7 November 2017. You will find the overall agenda and the registration form here.
