Understanding and Improving the Sustainability of Agro-ecological Farming Systems in the EU Join us for the virtual conference of our H2020 project!

UNISECO is a European Union H2020 research project ( aiming to develop innovative approaches to enhance the understanding of socio-economic and policy drivers and barriers for further development and implementation of agro-ecological practices in EU farming systems.
