The conference will take place in Brussels, rue de la loi 170 (Charlemagne Building) from 2 Mai 12:00 until 3 May 18:00.
The conference is about EU agriculture and rural research and innovation activities now and in the future.
These activities are driven by a long-term strategic approach to EU agricultural research and innovation which was published in July 2016, after a year-long participatory process including a large conference on 26-28 January 2016.
