28 June 2018

On Friday, June 29th, 2018, the Agricultural University of Athens holds a one-day seminar for the presentation of the project “New Agriculture for a New Generation” whose objective is to help revitalize one of Greece’s most critical sectors—agriculture—by training and developing a new generation of farmers and inspiring agriculture and food entrepreneurs.

The project is made possible through a $27,477,000 grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) as part of SNF’s “Recharging The Youth” initiative which aims to open-up employment opportunities for the younger generation in Greece.

The innovative three-year project is spearheaded by Rutgers University¬–New Brunswick in partnership with the Agricultural University of Athens (AUA) and American Farm School (AFS).
