FASTER’s 4th Steering Committee which took place on 23 October gathered the different partners to talk about the main progress made during the last six months as well as how they will keep the project working during 2021.

One of the most relevant topics on the table was how the new reality caused by the pandemic COVID-19 has affected the project until now and, most importantly, how will the project go on considering the current context. The pandemic has caught the project in the middle, and there is still one year forward, in which all the activities that had been planned will have to be adapted. FASTER partners will keep working hard to maintain the project on track as well as its objectives despite the unfortunate situation.

FASTER (Farmers’ Adaptation and Sustainability in Tunisia through Excellence in Research) aims to reinforce research and knowledge transfer capacity of INRGREF (National Research Institute of Rural Engineering, Water and Forests) related to innovative land and water management in view of climate change and its implementation through the use of Farm Advisory Systems (FAS). This project has received funding from the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
