Do the start-up support to young farmers promote generational renewal?

The European Commission has expressed concerns for a shortage of young farmers in Europe. This is regarded as problematic since young farmers are viewed as being more entrepreneurial and having stronger preference for sustainability and animal welfare. To promote generational renewal, young farmers can apply for start-up grants from the rural development programme.

The project will be finalized in autumn 2019
