Agrinatura is a grouping of European universities and research organizations with a common interest in supporting agricultural development in a sustainable manner in order to improve people’s lives. Agriculture will continue to be the largest sector in many developing countries for the foreseeable future and will remain a key determinant of wider economic growth, poverty reduction and food security. Agricultural research and education will underpin the innovations needed to increase production and productivity to feed rapidly expanding populations and help protect the natural resource base for future generations.
Member organizations in Agrinatura are actively contributing to the development and dissemination of new knowledge that drives innovation. The Pan-European dimension of the grouping enables it to draw on a wide range of multi- and inter-disciplinary expertise and experiences both in Europe and elsewhere.
Agrinatura works through strategic partnerships with agricultural research and development organizations and is especially active in sub-Saharan Africa where development needs are most evident. However, Agrinatura recognizes the global nature of emerging agricultural issues, which affect Europe as well as other continents. Many of these issues are complex, such as the links between food and energy security, and require multi-sectoral solutions and inter-continental cooperation.+ Our members
