AMMAN — The National Agricultural Research Centre (NARC), the Regional Forest Agency for Land and Environment of Sardinia (Fo.Re.S.T.A.S.) and the LIVINGAGRO Consortium have announced the opening of registration for the two new brokerage events that will take place in Amman this month. 

The event will take place at the Regency Palace Amman on March 14 and 15, 2023, said a statement from the organisers.

With a highlight on the expanding socio-economic significance of agroforestry in olive groves and grazed woodlands in the Mediterranean region, the Second B2B event in Jordan on Multifunctional Olive Systems and the Second B2B event in Jordan on Grazed Woodlands will offer an opportunity for economic stakeholders, decision-makers and research stakeholders to benefit from the achievements of the LIVINGAGRO project in this field, and to exploit top-rated research and innovations that will help them improve and develop their businesses and identify cross-border collaborations.

Once again, the events’ organisers have invited a distinguished panel of acclaimed speakers to share their experiences and present cutting-edge technology, while an open discussion moderated by a facilitator will guide participants through the best practices aiming to maximise profitability, sustainability, and biodiversity in the light of limited resources and environmental constraints. 

The last part of the two events will feature a business matchmaking session, allowing interested participants to request one-on-one meetings with innovators and LIVINGAGRO Consortium representatives seeking in-depth discussions with experts. 

The Cross Border Living Laboratories for Agroforestry (LIVINGAGRO) project is co-funded by the European Union through the ENI CBC Med Programme 2014-2020 and implemented in Italy, Greece, Lebanon and Jordan. 

The project aims to support education, research and development, innovation and technology transfer, including sharing of research results, by establishing two Living Labs, one for multifunctional olive systems (Living Lab 1) and the other for grazed woodlands (Living Lab 2).
