Governance

The project is coordinated by the French Chambers of Agriculture (APCA) with the support of the Management Board composed of the various Work Package leaders (UHOH, TEAGASC, AGRIDEA, ZLTO and EUFRAS) and the project’s financial advisor (CIRCA).

International Advisory board

An International Advisory Board (IAB) will be appointed and steered by the Management Board at the end of 2020. The IAB is a panel of six stakeholders concerned with innovation support. Their role is to support the consortium by providing advice and different perspectives, to “see the bigger picture” and to ensure that the views of various stakeholders are effectively taken into account. The IAB members shall be allowed to participate in General Assembly meetings upon invitation but will not have any voting rights.
