RURITAGE participated in the 2023 edition of EU Agriresearch, held on 31 May and 1 June, in Brussels, Belgium.

This year’s edition of EU Agriresearch gave participants the opportunity to engage with scientists, farmers, rural communities, industry, advisors, policymakers, citizens and NGO representatives. It provided an overview of European research and innovation activities and their achievements in agriculture, forestry and rural development. Participants were invited to share their views on how to shape the future EU agricultural research and innovation agenda. Field visits were organised after the conference.
