Project H2020 HNV-Link

High Nature Value Farming: Learning, Innovation and Knowledge 

 

Funded by | H2020-ISIB-2015-1

Our Budget | €€148 250.00

Objetives |  Developing and sharing of innovations that support farming systems in areas of exceptional natural values across Europe through a multi-actor approach. High nature value (HNV) farmland defines areas in Europe where agricultural activities support and are associated with exceptionally high biodiversity. These areas are an important component of European agriculture not only for their natural values but also for cultural heritage, quality products and rural employment. Such farming is practised most frequently in areas where natural constraints prevent intensive production. They mainly, but not exclusively, involve low-intensity livestock farming. The 13-partner network, HNV-Link is dedicated to developing and sharing innovations that support HNV farming systems and communities by simultaneously improving their socio-economic viability and environmental efficiency.

Project duration | 2016- 2019
