This funding program is part of the National Strategic Plan.

The EIP-Agrar.NRW funding competition is intended to help improve the competitiveness and innovative capacity of North Rhine-Westphalia’s agriculture, forestry, food and horticulture sectors. Innovations under EIP can be technical, organizational, methodological or social.

Project ideas can be submitted to the competition in the following areas:
