MEF4CAP Interactive Reflection Workshop – 30 March 2023


We are pleased to invite you to our interactive reflection workshop "A Roadmap for Future Monitoring of the CAP”, which will take place on 30 March from 9:30 - 12:30 CET in-person, at Rue des Deux Eglises 14-16, Brussels, and online. Please note that in-person attendance is limited and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. 

The workshop is organised in the framework of the MEF4CAP project, looking to harness the benefits of technology in connection to the new data needs which are prompted by the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy, Green Deal, Farm to Fork and Biodiversity Strategy. The ambition is to minimise costs and administrative burdens, optimise the value of the data collected, and ensure the potential of different approaches are fully exploited, all whilst ensuring that the needs of different stakeholders are met. 

During the workshop, MEF4CAP partners will present the outcomes of the demonstration cases and invite participants to reflect on the preliminary lessons learned from the project, which will be used to develop a roadmap for the future monitoring and evaluation of the CAP. We look forward to welcoming you at the workshop!
