The Warsaw branch office of the Agricultural Advisory Centre in Brwinów (CDR) was set up in 2018 to act as the National Support Unit of the Polish Rural Network as well as to coordinate the Polish Innovation Network. The branch office thus works towards all stakeholders in Poland’s rural and agricultural sector, with no special focus on agricultural advisors. The office works to carry out a) information activities i.a. through the two networks’ websites (www.ksow.pl and www.sir.cdr.gov.pl), b) networking activities (workshops, conferences), c) running grant competitions to support national-level projects carried out by the Rural Network’s partner organisations (approximately 35-40 projects a year), and d) cooperation with the national rural networks in other EU member states as well as the EU-wide contact points of the European Network for Rural Development (ENRD) and the European Innovation Partnership (EIP-AGRI).
