Learning, Sharing, Innovating

The food journeys from farms to citizens' forks have multiplied across Europe and no common path was followed. Lonely routes hardly meet and exchange information with one another.

Knowledge, good results, inspiring experiences remain fragmented and disconnected.   

The community that SKIN fosters is based on an economy of sharing, which relies on a close-knit and cooperative exchange of knowledge among european farmers and cooperatives, fostering the aggregation of european good practices and initiatives in the Short Food Supply (SFC) sector.


Promoting innovation from the ground, bottom-up and demand-driven in the short food chain domain: an area of vital importance for the future agriculture and our rural economies. To meet this objective, SKIN will identify 100 good practices across Europe, based on the preliminary work already carried out within the EIP-AGRI Focus Group, as well as by the consortium partners in their relevant regions.


This will be done in two phases, focussing first on the 25 regions and 14 countries directly involved in the project, and then on countries through the engagement of external stakeholders.
