IEEP created the ESAD platform in 2019 and coordinates its activities. The platform gathers a diverse set of stakeholders to collectively discuss and inform EU and national decision-makers on the importance of agricultural Research & Innovation (R&I).


The European Sustainable Agriculture Dialogue (ESAD) works to achieve systemic changes towards sustainable food systems. R&I can impact the entire system through any of its sub-systems (e.g. farming techniques, waste management, inputs/entrants & supply, etc.) and/or through any of its actors along the food chain (e.g. production, processing, distribution, consumption and disposal).
