Primary production is in transition. The agricultural and fisheries industries are struggling with productivity, profitability and sustainability problems, and the most important issues in forestry are the adequacy of timber production and the sustainability of forest use. The challenge for the programme is to ensure the adequacy of primary production and to improve profitability in a sustainable way.

The programme provides solutions to

  • diverse development and renewal of primary production to enable a lasting transition
  • assessment and deployment of enabling technologies in primary production and its value chains.
