WP2: Case Studies

Lead Partner: Agricultural University of Athens

Work Package 2 uses a network of farm- and supply chain-based Innovation Case Studies across the pedo-climatic zones to determine and demonstrate the factors that will contribute to successful transitions.

Types of Legumes involved in TRUE Case Studies

There are many different types of legumes involved in the different case studies. The text size is related to the number of different case studies with this legume.
