The first online meeting of the Spanish National Community of Practice of the modernAKIS
On June 28th, the first online meeting of the Spanish National Community of Practice of the modernAKIS project took place, organised by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of Spain (MAPA).
More than 20 members will form the most representative community of AKIS at national level, with profiles from all areas: CAP management authorities, advisory services, farmers’ associations, educational and research institutions and international bodies in the field of agriculture and environment.
Our colleagues Nuria Rodríguez and Rebeca Díez, from FEUGA, shared with this working group the main points of the modernAKIS project and presented the first steps that will shape this group as a “Think Tank” with the aim of identifying and defining the Spanish AKIS to, later on, participate jointly in the events at European level that will be developed throughout the modernAKIS project.
The MAPA presented the Ministry’s role in defining the Spanish AKIS and the ongoing actions in this area. They also highlighted the direct collaboration with the ATTRACTISS and EU-FarmBook projects.
FEUGA will meet with the Spanish CoP again next October at the Directorate General for Rural Development, Innovation and Agri-Food Training in Madrid in order to continue joining ideas to this project!
