Abstract

In the framework of a wide Foresight process, launched by the Standing Committee on Agricultural Research (SCAR) and aiming to identify possible scenarios for European agriculture in a 20-year perspective, DG RTD/E of the European Commission established a high level Expert Group, that reviewed and analysed foresight information relating to European agriculture in relation to 8 major driving forces. The report of this expert group served as an important input to the Conference "Towards Future Challenges of Agricultural Research in Europe", Brussels 26-27 June 2007. The conference brought together major European and worldwide actors/stakeholders from the fields of agriculture, food, forestry, aquaculture, rural development, consumer science/behaviour and economics. The discussions at the conference focused on areas where research could contribute to help agriculture face future challenges. This report gives an overview of the background and the results of the conference.
