IMPRESA will provide a comprehensive, multi-method overview of SRA in Europe, by acquiring, reviewing and interpreting agricultural research activity in a range of generic types, with science specific to agronomy and the agri-environment, together with science-derived innovations from other disciplines such as genetics, information technology and remote sensing. It will acquire and analyse data from initial primary research and the availability of farm financial data (FADN) and the Farm Structures Survey. IMPRESA is divided into four research and technological work packages (WPs), one work package for knowledge exchange and dissemination, and one work package dedicated to project management.
- On an aggregate scale, analysis will be used to determine impacts on productivity, profitability, resource efficiency. In-depth case-study approaches, representing the broad diversity of agro-climatic conditions in Europe, as well as different types of innovation, will use both quantitative as well as qualitative analysis to explore research impacts on the resilience and sustainability of farming. The framework of interaction between different elements of the proposed project is shown graphically in the figure below.
