‘BO Akkerbouw’ is the central platform and knowledge center for arable farming in the Netherlands. One of the central tasks of BO Akkerbouw is the implementation of the research and innovation program. BO Akkerbouw has its own resources to carry out research. These resources are provided by the arable farming sector itself. BO Akkerbouw strives to use these resources as effectively and efficiently as possible. In connection with this, BO Akkerbouw wanted to be able to respond to opportunities for EU funding for research (Horizon Europe). In the context of collaboration, BO Akkerbouw also wanted to gain more insight into research groups working on certain topics elsewhere in Europe. Innova Connect has supported BO Akkerbouw on both topics.
