A consortium of paying agencies, research institutes and private sector organisations collaborate to build the next level CAP governance tools. The project is designed to absorb the latest e-tools and digitisation trends to simplify the CAP governance, to reduce administrative burden to farmers and to close the gap between IACS data use and potential broader use.
The NIVA project works in 9 use cases each focusing on a particular aspect of the CAP governing tools. The beneficiaries of these use cases are not just paying agencies, but all stakeholders involved in agricultural monitoring. Stakeholders include first of all farmers themselves, their representatives, suppliers and agrifood chain partners. Also, other policy domains with a relation to agriculture are relevant, in particular from nature, environment and climate, both at European and national policy levels, at research and knowledge centres and with NGOs. The tech sector is another relevant stakeholder, with policy makers at European and national level, universities and technology innovation centres and of course the industry, including hard and software developers.
The NIVA project operates a stakeholder platform for both dissemination and dialogue to better understand (and improve) how the project contributes to the wider ecosystem and to stay informed of the latest developments. NIVA and CAPIGI work together on bringing relevant topics to attention of a wide but relevant audience.
