The Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development, with the participation of ENVI and JURI, organised a public hearing on Enabling innovation for sustainable agriculture. Academics, civil society and practitioners from the European Innovation Partnership EIP-AGRI discussed with Members and the European Commission about different aspects of innovation both in animal and plant production.

Also, they addressed both technological as well as social innovation as means to increase the sustainability of European agriculture.
