ARCH - European Agricultural Research towards greater impact on global CHallenges


A Joint EIARD SCAR Strategic Working Group for improved linkages between Agricultural Research and Agricultural Research for Development aims at identifying and working towards ways to increase the contribution of European Agricultural Research investments to the solution of global challenges.

To be noted:

European AR investments” covers investments by the European Union and by Member States (and associated countries), in cash and in kind.

Increase the contribution” emphasises that the question is not about increasing the investments in research i.e. it is not about more money for research, but about an increase of the impact of such Investments.
