DAFM Call for Proposals: European Innovation Partnerships Initiative

Deadline: 31 October 2017

The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) is inviting applicants for funding in the second of two open calls for proposals under the European Innovation Partnerships Initiative, under the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020.

EIP Projects is seeking proposals from groups who have come together to develop new ways of approaching problems, opportunities or challenges, particularly but not exclusively environmental or climate related, and which offer a novel way forward, perhaps with wider application.

Funding Streams

In effect there are two streaming funds within this call which will be administered via the same process throughout:

Stream A

The first stream aims to facilitate joint innovative approaches to projects and practices focusing particular on activities related to Rural Development Priorities 2 and 3 as set out in the Rural Development Regulation and Ireland’s RDP (see below for details)  These Priorities include themes such as:

  • Farm viability, economic performance, and competitiveness
  • Innovative technologies and sustainable forest management
  • Food chain organisation and risk management

€4m of the total budget available over the lifetime of the measure will be focused on this stream.

Stream B

This stream also aims to facilitate joint innovative approaches to projects and practices focusing particular on activities related to Rural Development Priorities 4 and 5 as set out in the Rural Development Regulation and Ireland’s RDP.  These priorities include themes such as:

  • the preservation of agricultural landscapes
  • water quality
  • resource efficiency
  • climate mitigation/adaptation
  • biodiversity

Proposals for projects targeting the restoration of upland peats are specifically invited, but it is hoped that a very wide range of ideas and proposals will emerge in response to this Call, with innovation the common denominator across them all.

€20m of the total budget available over the lifetime of the measure will be focused on this stream.

Eligibility Criteria

Operational Groups based in Ireland will be eligible for this funding.

How to Apply

Applications must be submitted via email at the address given on the website.
