GeTie project coordinator and EQAsce-member Christian Kenntner has presented the latest stage of the project “joint effort for animal welfare (GeTie)” at an online meeting which dealt with the future of EIP funding projects. The German Center for Rural Development (ZeLE) had invited to exchange ideas and experiences about the European Innovation Partnerships – EIP. The current funding period which is running out soon has brought up a lot of good experiences, smooth operating and a decrease in administrative efforts at some points. That is an opinion that many participants shared. The German states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Schleswig-Holstein, Saxony-Anhalt, Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate have presented all their experiences. In a special session, all 13 EIP.NRW-projects that started in 2020 introduced themselves in a kind of speed-dating, among them of course the EQAsce-project “GeTie”.
