CAP4AgroInnovation is the new project promoted by Image Line with the support of the European Union (IMCAP Programme) in order to inform citizens about the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).

The keywords that summarize the aim of the project are young farmers, agriculture financing (thanks to funds for rural development), digital agriculture and, of course, innovation in agriculture (indeed, we like to talk about agro-innovation!)


The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is the EU's longest-standing policy which aims to provide accessible, safe and high-quality food to the greatest number of people, guarantee a fair standard of living for farmers, preserve natural resources and the environment. The new CAP for the period 2023-2027 is based on 10 main objectives which represent the beacons for the implementation of a system based on good agricultural practices, including innovation and knowledge.

The current political-economic situation, characterized by strong uncertainty, has shed new light on the role of agriculture in ensuring food security, but several gaps still remain in understanding the real impact that agriculture and the policies that support it have on society as a whole.

To address these gaps, CAP4AgroInnovation will launch a variety of informational and awareness-raising initiatives aimed at Italian citizens, highlighting the role of the CAP in fostering innovation for competitive and sustainable agriculture from both environmental and social perspectives. With a particular focus on the younger generation, the project will develop a training program tailored for students, teachers, and young researchers. This program will provide interactive and engaging materials, activities, and tools to help them interpret the CAP and grasp its significance not only for agricultural innovation but for the evolving society as a whole.

Additionally, the project will implement informational campaigns using both innovative and traditional formats to reach the widest possible audience, emphasizing innovation in agriculture and the policies that support it. Ultimately, CAP4AgroInnovation will make a significant contribution to the Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation System (AKIS). Mutual learning and the sharing of agricultural knowledge will be central to this initiative. Researchers, farmers, and citizens will be engaged at various levels in the project's diverse activities.

Activities: from podcasts to social media, to tell how to implement 'agroinnovation' thanks to the CAP

Based on the European scenario highlighted by the available literature and the needs analysis conducted within the ParteciPAC and ParteciPAC22 projects, CAP4AgroInnovation will promote various initiatives aimed at the general public, emphasizing the role of the CAP in driving structural change in the agricultural sector.
