A CORE GROUP OF 9 OPERATIONAL GROUPS
CLIMED-FRUIT aims to share knowledge ready for practice, collected from different Operational Groups (OG) across Europe, for a better climate change adaptation and mitigation in perennial crops in the Mediterranean area.
The project is implemented by a multi-actor consortium (advisors, farmer organisations, research and education institutes, one standardisation organisation), and builds on the results of a core group of 9 OGs. Several consortium partners are involved in the coordination and the implementation of these 9 OGs, which allows them to have direct on-hand feedback from practitioners.

A EUROPEAN NETWORK TO SCALE UP LOCAL SOLUTIONS UP TO THE EU LEVEL AND TO SHARE GOOD PRACTICES BETWEEN CROPS
Building the network and capitalising on existing results from OGs core group
This first step will enable to build a specific network of operational groups active in the field of climate change resilience in perennial crops and collect best practices and practical results from OGs core group, members of the consortium.
Collecting new knowledge ready to practice from outside the consortium
This second step will enable to collect additional information from outside the consortium through innovative formats: an online open contest aimed at operational groups, EU projects or international initiatives related to climate change resilience for perennial crops in the Mediterranean area, and a specific crowd writing contest where service providers will propose innovative solutions already applied on the market.
Summarising the information in easy to access formats
All information collected will be summarized to produce useful and easily understandable digital material to be used by farmers, advisors, teachers, professors…
This last step consists in implementing the communication and dissemination activities. It will include local dissemination events, partnerships with publishers of specialized journals and magazines, an OG forum to showcase the results of the project…
