The Strategic Plan of the Common Agricultural Policy (KAP), which contains the domestic support sources that can be used until 2027, also offers exploitable opportunities for professional organizations operating in the sector. The new tender schemes for the support of unique knowledge transfer and consulting services are expected to appear in the summer, explained Anikó Juhász, Deputy State Secretary responsible for agrarian economy.

Anikó Juhász highlighted that the calls for tenders entitled “Support for unique knowledge transfer services” and “Starting a new consulting service” are expected to appear in the summer of 2024. In addition to individual consultants and consulting organizations, the beneficiaries of the calls are now also professional, interprofessional and breeding organizations, as long as they help farmers working in their sector, both their members and non-members, with consulting activities in the future.

Both calls support the implementation of knowledge transfer in the fields of agriculture, forestry and the food industry

The aim is that the organizations dealing with this can provide knowledge transfer services that best meet the needs and respond to special needs, which promote effective practical applications and innovation, increasing economic competitiveness, taking into account sustainability, environmental, climate and soil protection, and also the requirements of resource efficiency – listed the deputy state secretary.

Anikó Juhász stated that the support also gives organizations the opportunity to modernize their knowledge transfer, innovation and digitization services

With the call for the launch of a new consulting service, organizations are given the opportunity to receive support in priority areas such as strengthening environmental and climate protection knowledge or generational renewal, the requirements defined in the KAP strategic plan, combating antimicrobial resistance, risk prevention and management, in the fields of innovation support, digital technologies, sustainable nutrient management, employment conditions and employer obligations. The implementation of the project aimed at creating new independent consulting services can be supported with a lump sum for 5 years, and will primarily be aimed at developing the necessary tools and training, he added. The Ministry of Agriculture is doing everything in its power to support those professionals who provide greyhound businesses and farmers with the best possible knowledge and information, as this is essential for the sector’s competitiveness and adaptation to the rapidly changing environment.
