The outputs are intended to contribute to the implementation of the European Green Deal, the Farm to Fork Strategy (F2F), the EU’s biodiversity strategy for 2030, the preparation of the European partnership for research and innovation in agroecological labs and research infrastructures and the national strategic plans for the CAP. Fifteen case studies were presented, as well as the LIFT project - Low-Input Farming and Territories, which, among other things, uses data obtained from the FADN survey in its work.

The article about technology classes and their changes was published in the weekly paper Zemědělec (12/2021). The authors Ing. Vladimír Kostlivý, Dr. and Ing. Zuzana Fuksová, Ph.D. describe situation of crop farms in the Czech Republic. Farms specialized in crop production represent 30% of agricultural entities which manage 35% of agricultural land. These companies differ in the ways and conditions of their management and are very diverse. Evaluated farms were divided into three groups - technological classes. The characteristics of these classes, class membership dynamics, the reason of changes, and the possible impact of subsidies were analysed. The methodology of the international OECD project, on which IAEI-FADN participated for several years, was used for implementation. The article is available in Publishing activity section.
