Project COFARM

Enhancing COoperation amongst FARMing entrepreneurs

Web page:

Agriculture and agricultural production are increasingly facing 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 a possible way to overcome some of these constraints to growth.

Main objectives and results

The COFARM project aims to develop a flexible training system based on case studies that will provide rural entrepreneurs, rural landowners and farmers with skills and knowledge to implement cooperative initiatives among agricultural entrepreneurs.

The training system is based on the OER (Open Educational Resources) approach, thus ensuring broad access, free of charge and great flexibility in the training process.
