The first trial training seminar on “Circular Economy: On farm opportunities and good practices”, was held at the premises of the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania (CIHEAM-MAICh) on Tuesday 22nd, Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th May, 2018. The seminar was organized within the framework of the Farmcircle project.

Presentations were given by Dr. B. Kulisic and Dr. M. Perovic (EIHP) to more than thirty participants coming from different backgrounds, i.e. economy, agronomy, mechanical engineering, etc.

The seminar focused on new trends & business opportunities in bio-economy and more specifically on new technologies and opportunities for biomass use, and the recycling of existing materials and products that are generally considered as “waste”, to ensure environmental protection, sustainability and the production of added-value quality agricultural products.

The participants assessed the teaching material presented as highly valuable; highly motivating with specific proposed modifications so that it becomes more reader-friendly and easier to comprehend by the farmers.
