Call for Proposals - Support for information measures relating to the Common Agricultural Policy CAP 2013 Closed!

Objectives

Based on Council Regulation (EC) No 814/2000 of 17 April 2000 on information measures relating to the common agricultural policy (CAP), which defines the type and content of the information measures the European Union may co-finance. Commission Regulation (EC) No 2208/2002, as amended by Regulation (EC) No 1820/2004, lays down detailed rules for the application of Council Regulation (EC) No 814/2000.
 
Priority theme: The reformed CAP
 
Specific themes by audience
a) For citizens, the priority themes will deal with general topics about the CAP and should focus on its three core elements: food safety, sustainable management of our natural resources and the development of our rural areas. The objective of these actions is to inform a large number of people about the basic issues of the reformed CAP.
b) For rural actors, actions should focus on more specific issues, in particular the implementation of new measures introduced by the CAP reform, such as the convergence of direct aids, their greening’, conditionality, specific support measures for certain types of production, support for young farmers and small farms, market support mechanisms, producer and interbranch organisations, development of short supply circuits, risk management, insurance-income systems, access to quality schemes such as PDO/PGI/TSG (actions targeting producers, especially in Member States with a low rate of registration), innovation and restructuring, modernisation and diversification of businesses and other rural development measures, or the farm advisory systems.
