Abstract

SMARTAgriFor is a project funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020, lasting for one year (ending May 2016) and involves three partners: the Foundation for the Science and Technology (FCT) in Portugal, which coordinates the project and collaborates with 10 third parties from the Portuguese Scientific and Technological System; the University of Wageningen and the DLO both in The Netherlands. SMARTAgriFor will define the vision, mission and strategy for the creation, under a disruptive concept, of an international Centre of Excellence in Agriculture and Forestry in Portugal. SMARTAgriFor’s strategy is to promote a highly interactive and innovative research programme, executed within an environment of mutual respect. The Centre focuses on achieving scientific excellence and generating impact at stakeholder and societal levels, with a focus on currently relevant and specifically-chosen research issues. The Centre defends excellent management to ensure that excellent and relevant research results are achieved and exchanged with stakeholders.
