FARMENT; Green Agricultural Innovation – From Farmer to Entrepreneur

The project addresses agricultural innovation and entrepreneurship in the Baltic Sea region.

Farmers in the Baltic Sea region are facing challenges such as climate change, slow economic growth, and political instability. The FARMENT project argues that in order to face these challenges, more knowledge about entrepreneurship, sustainability and agricultural innovation among those working in agriculture is needed.

The project aims to increase the entrepreneurial competence in farmers, educators and students. It will establish a research collaboration between four universities in the Baltic Sea region. Farmers, researchers and students are invited to participate in seminars where they will exchange insights and knowledge. The universities will also identify common research interests on the topic and plan future research collaborations. The three Baltic universities are in the process of developing a joint master programme in Agri-Food Business Management. They will exchange teaching experience and develop this cooperation as part of the project.
