Promoting education, training, up-skilling, continuous learning and knowledge sharing for a thriving plant sector
Why is education important?
A skilled and well-trained workforce is essential for the plant sector to thrive and contribute to productive and sustainable agricultural systems. The next generation of plant scientists, breeders, farmers, processors etc… need a unique degree of knowledge, entrepreneurship and flexibility to react to rapidly changing environments, consumer preferences and political frameworks. Assuring an appropriately qualified and skilled workforce for the plant sector is critical to the transition towards sustainable agricultural systems and the success of the EU Green Deal goals.
