Tools for Modelling Agricultural Policy
Joint effort improves modelling capabilities for agriculture
BESTMAP joins forces with two European projects to enhance agricultural policies in the European Union. AGRICORE, BESTMAP and MIND STEP build a strong cluster, which aims at developing a highly modular and customisable suite of tools to model capabilities in the agriculture sector.
On 31 October 2017, the European Commission opened a call for projects aiming to improve the modelling capabilities for agriculture which would ultimately support evidence-based policymaking in the sector.
As a response to this call, three projects proposed innovative approaches to increase modelling capabilities. These projects act together forming the AGRIMODELS cluster in order to coordinate the potential synergies between them.
