European Innovation Partnership Wales

Making innovative ideas a reality on farms and in woodlands across Wales

EIP Wales is a new approach to supporting the development of research and innovation in agriculture in Wales.

EIP Wales will be supported by the Farming Connect Knowledge Exchange Hub, which is hosted by Aberystwyth University’s Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS).

EIPs were first launched by the EU in 2012 and their aim is to bring people from different practical and scientific backgrounds together to solve common agricultural problems.

Research results, findings and advice on best practice from EIP Wales will be disseminated to the wider industry through the Farming Connect programme in Wales and in Europe through the EIP programme.
