Pilot Projects

Co-Design Solutions

AGROMIX works with 12 in-depth pilot projects across Europe to develop and test current mixed farming and agroforestry systems through a participatory co-design process, with the ambition of increasing their environmental and socio-economic resilience. These 12 projects are located in three agro-climatic zones across Europe, use different land management systems, and have different socio-economic contexts, representing a variety of farming systems in Europe. The pilot projects will be carried out in two phases: First, the participatory design approach will be tested in six projects; then, the methodology will be revised, improved, and tested on the remaining six.
