2nd Project Meeting, Jaen, Spain

The second transnational meeting took place in Jaén, Spain on the 21st and 22nd April 2016. Representatives from the eight project partners came together to assess the progress of the project so far and to discuss planned future activities of the project.

During the first day of the transnational meeting the project partners discussed the challenges of current farm succession processes across Europe, before addressing the topics of project management and dissemination of the project and the project’s products in the afternoon. On the second day of the meeting throughout the morning session, project partners further discussed the management of the project for the upcoming months as well as monitoring and evaluation of the progress of project. To conclude the formal meeting proceedings a Q&A session was held along with a meeting evaluation. Following this, the project partners visited a family olive farm in Jaén, where a successful succession process had recently taken place. As well as having an opportunity to understand the history of the succession process first hand from a successor’s perspective, partners were also able to learn about the challenges of the process and the positive changes that had resulted on the family farm as a consequence of the successful succession process.
