The AGROMIX project aims to drive a transition to more resilient and efficient land use in Europe. It will do this by using participatory approaches to capitalise on the synergies found in mixed farming (crop + livestock) and agroforestry (trees + crops and/or livestock) systems and the associated value chains. The initial research will be based on 12 contrasting pilot sites across Europe. The project, which 10 universities, 7 research institutes and 11 multi-actor partners, also seeks to inform the development of future agricultural policy.
