BI-GD is partnering in a new Horizon 2020 project for creating a network of newcomers in agriculture

The project New Entrant netWork: Business models for Innovation, entrepreneurship and resilience in European agriculture, acronym NEWBIE, in which Business Incubator - Gotse Delchev is a project partner, aims to address the significant challenge of enabling new entrants to successfully establish sustainable farm businesses in Europe.

The NEWBIE network will facilitate the development and dissemination of new business models, including new entry models, to the full range of new entrants - from successors to complete newcomers to the agricultural sector.

This will be achieved by a transdisciplinary network of farming organizations, educators, advisors, researchers and industry stakeholders, who will assemble, assess and exchange the state of the art on new entrant farming enterprises, and establish national and European new entrant support networks. NEWBIE will focus particularly on enabling innovative business models developed by new entrants to be integrated into academic research and educational curricula, and broadly disseminated to new entrants across Europe.
