The Innovation Network in Agriculture and Rural Areas (SIR)
SIR Network functions as part of the Polish Rural Network and is the national correspondent for the agricultural European Innovation Partnership (EIP-AGRI).
The main objective of the SIR is to support innovation in agriculture, food production, forestry and rural areas.
The Network’s mission is to:
- Facilitate the development and operation of networking among farmers, advisory units, research centres, entrepreneurs of the agri-food sector and other entities supporting the implementation of innovations in agriculture, forestry, food production, and in rural areas,
- Facilitate the transfer of knowledge and of best practice in innovations in agriculture, forestry, food production, and in rural areas,
- Assist in the establishment of EIP-AGRI Operational Groups and in drafting projects for implementation by the Groups, as well as in promoting the results of their activities.
The implementation of SIR tasks within the organizational structure of CDR is possible thanks to the advisory staff with many years of experience in cooperation with farmers, entrepreneurs operating in rural areas and with scientific and research units.
The Network currently brings together almost 900 partners.
CDR coordinates the implementation of the SIR at the national level in Poland.
