EU Research & Innovation Projects

The main contribution of SEGES in research and innovation projects is dissemination of the project results to the farmers as well as the subsequent implementation on the farms. These fields have been our long term area of specialisation

SEGES is also an EU approved private research institution and our agricultural and biological experts are also involved in the research issues of the projects in which they participate.

Below you will find a list of EU research and innovation projects SEGES is involved in as a partner in recent years.

Horizon 2020: The Framework Programme for Research and Innovation

AgriSPIN, Space for innovations in Agriculture 2015-2017

Far from all innovation processes succeed. So what makes an innovation process move forward? And what stops it? The EU-project “AgriSpin – Space for Innovations in Agriculture” seeks to find the answers to those questions and many more by identifying best practices for innovation and support systems in European agriculture.

EuroDairy - A pan-European network for dairy farming

EuroDairy is a network to increase the economic, social and environmental sustainability of dairy farming in Europe. EuroDairy will foster the development and dissemination of practice-based innovations in dairy farming, targeting key sustainability issues following the abolition of milk quotas: socio economic resilience, resource efficiency, animal care, and the integration of milk production with biodiversity objectives.

The OK-Net Arable 2015-2017

The complexity of organic farming requires farmers to have a very high level of knowledge and skills. But exchange on organic farming techniques remains limited. The OK-Net Arable project aims to facilitate co-creation of knowledge by farmers, farm advisers and scientists to increase productivity and quality in organic arable cropping all over Europe.

FP 7 Research & Development Projects


Sustainable pig and poultry production systems. FP7-KBBE, 2013-2018

PROHEALTH aims at improving competitiveness and sustainability of modern pig and poultry farming in Europe.

Production diseases compromise health and welfare of pigs and poultry, generating inefficiencies which reduce profitability and product quality, and increase environmental footprint and antibiotic use.

The PROHEALTH project will develop an understanding of the multi-factorial dimension of animal pathologies linked to the intensification of production and use this to develop, evaluate and disseminate effective control strategies to reduce impact. The project has 22 partners from around Europe.

STRAT-Training project

The frequent changes in today’s context (consumer’s needs, competitors, price of raw materials, legal constraints, CAP changes, sustainable development) leave managers of Very Small Enterprises (VSEs), especially those from the rural and agricultural sector, facing uncertainty and Strategy problems. Thus, the sustainability of the VSEs and their region is challenged.

The STRAT-Training project, granted by the LEONARDO DA VINCI programme of the European Union, aims to develop a Strategy to help VSEs respond to this context.

Interreg Progam Projects



The farmer as water manager under changing climatic conditions.

The project focused on enabling farmers to act successfully as water managers in changing climatic conditions. The project presented water risk management practices that reduce the consequences of flooding, droughts, water shortage and nutrient transport.

SEGES was project leader.
