AGRIFA facilitates the sharing of ideas and results to achieve a bigger goal: a sustainable agriculture and a safety food. AGRIFA aims enriching the specialist’s conversation with a transfer of ideas and solutions taking into account the participants individual experiences in overcoming obstacles and for better understanding the agriculture needs.

To develop farming practices that increase and preserve biodiversity, work for soil and water health, to improve food quality for people health, to apply the principles of the circular economy through the superior capitalization of agricultural wastes, remain a focus for the future.

AGRIFA facilitates the specialists need to communicate the necessity for better, unbiased data that farmers can use to be more efficient with inputs, policies to foster innovation and agriculture

The specialists want to communicate the need for better, unbiased data that farmers can use to be more efficient with inputs, policies to foster innovation, for better understanding the future challenge of a sustainable food and life.

In the frame of AGRIFA the participants have the possibility to analyze and discuss the future challenges of the agriculture and food systems by focusing on: (i) Agriculture 4.0; (ii) Viticulture; (iii) Biodiversity; (iv) Food quality and safety, and (v) Food adulteration – various aspects.
