The partners of the AGROMIX project will gather together in Residenza Le Benedettine, located in Pisa, Italy, from 7th-10th November 2022, to discuss Europe's mission to transform farms into more resilient and effective uses of land.

Agriculture is a leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions, and with increasing food insecurity and a rapidly growing global population, our response to these challenges must begin in the field. The European project AGROMIX, a Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation project that kicked off in November 2020 with a budget of 7 million euros, will run until 2024. AGROMIX focuses on a variety of ‘landscapes’ and seeks to address the physical, socio-economic, cultural, technological, and political aspects of the transition to more effective land use in Europe.

The project is coordinated by Coventry University (UK) and led by 28 partners from 14 European countries, including universities, research centers, government agencies, and on-the-ground farms and farming associations. AGROMIX launched 12 agroforestry and mixed farming co-design pilot sites in three different agro-climatic zones across Europe to develop and test current practices, with the ambition of increasing farms’ environmental and socio-economic resilience.

During AGROMIX's first in-person meeting in Pisa, partners will visit one of the pilot sites, Caseificio Sociale di Manciano, and two of the trial sites, Tenuta di Paganico and Arnino, both of which are in Tuscany, Europe's leading region for agricultural innovation and agribusiness.
