The European Commission co-finances projects to inform the public about the common agricultural policy (CAP). Projects can include:

TV features on agriculture and innovation;

  • farm visits;
  • information campaigns;
  • audiovisual and media activities;
  • apps for smartphones and tablets.

Any person or legal entity such as associations or national authorities can participate in the call for proposal, published once a year. European rules set out two aims for all information measures:

  • to explain and raise awareness on the EU support to agriculture and rural development through the CAP;
  • to engage with farmers and other actors in rural areas, and for them to further communicate to their constituencies and the wider public about the CAP.
