Objective: This workshop will base itself on best agricultural practices. It will evaluate to which conditions energy crops would be integrated in agriculture, with proposals to policy makers, at regional, national and European level. The findings of this workshop will be reported in a factsheet that will be first circulated to attendees for validation,
and then widely disseminated in Europe by all partners, and on the project web site. The factsheet will focus on the guidelines for a good integratione of energy crops by the agriculture stakeholders. This workshop will also be used to disseminate the results of the project gained so far and to get stakeholders’ feedback on these results.
