Farming and agricultural production face more and more social and environmental challenges. Family farms are a central element of EU agricultural policy and the viability of many family farms is under threat. Cooperative farming is seen as one possible way to overcome some of these constraints to growth.
The COFARM project aims at developing a flexible training system based on Case Studies that will provide to rural entrepreneurs, rural landowners and farmers skills and knowledge to implement initiatives of cooperation amongst farming entrepreneurs. The training system will be based on the OER approach thus guaranteeing a wide, free of charges access and a great flexibility in the training process.
The project consortium is made of 8 partners. Mediterranean Europe (ES, IT), Central Europe (DE, BE), Eastern Europe (SI, CZ) and Northern Europe (IE) are represented in the project consortium giving it a full coverage of different contexts within the EU.
The CO-FARM project was launched in 2016 for a duration of 30 months.
