- 23/11/2019

On 2019 November 17th, the University of Tartu and the Estonian Society of Professional Beekeepers presented for the first time the EFFECT project, introducing the Estonian innovation case study to the wider group of local stakeholders.

First presentation of the Estonian case to the local stakeholders

This happened within the Autumn Information Days of Apiarists at Jäneda Centre of Agricultural Information.

Honey bee keepers agreed about the lack of sufficient flower resources in contemporary rural landscape and that this suppresses honey production. Many of them were positively surprised about the option to collaborate with neighboring farmers. They demonstrated their interest in considering the option; however, they also agreed that the present form of the contract cannot be applied sufficiently widely. Some criteria should be more flexible.University of Tartu, as consortium partner of EFFECT,  promised further exchange of information already in spring 2020 to provide easing solutions for such implementation.
