Andalusian Agriculture

- Total Area: 87.599 sq Km (17% Total Spain)

- Population Density (96 inhab/sq Km) similar

to the Spanish, and lower than the EU-27

(114).

- Agricultural Area: 5,5 Mio Has.(63% Total)

- Grown Area: 3,2 Mio Ha (olives 48%, 1,5 Mio

Ha)

- Total Agricultural Workforce: 330.000 (8,2%

of total) (50% unemployed 3rd Q 2012)

- Agricultural Production Value in 2012: €

10.000 Mio

- Main productions (vegetables, fruits, olive

oil, cereals, pork, milk)

IFAPA is the Andalusian Institute of Agrarian and Fishing Research and Training.

It is assigned to the Andalusian Regional Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Rural Development of the Junta de Andalucía (Regional Government).

The Institute aims to contribute to the modernization of agriculture, fisheries and Agrofood sectors.

What is the IFAPA?

Aims

Page 4: Esteban Baeza

IFAPA CENTRES

18 Centres

> 1,000 ha

Annual budget:

65 million €

Staff: 971

Resources

Page 5: Esteban Baeza

More than 100 research projects are being conducted at present. These projects are financed by regional, national or international tenders, capturing 3.4 million €. (120 ISI scientific articles/year)

We also design research programmes with the participation of all related agents and stakeholders.

Main activities

1. Research

Page 6: Esteban Baeza

The IFAPA organises, manages and offers a vast Training Programme, which is oriented to researchers, technicians and professionals in the fields of farming, foodstuff, and fishing.

Around 20,000 students take part in training activities annually (800-1,000 institutional and specialized courses a year).

Main Activities

2. Training

Page 7: Esteban Baeza

Advisory Service: This consists of a technology-transfer service for innovation in the primary sector. This is a tool based on the use of ICT that makes IFAPA agricultural and fishery knowledge available to the user.

Remote training: IFAPA courses taught over the internet (pesticides, irrigation, fishing…).

Accords with the sector companies. 70 technology-transfer projects funded through contracts with companies and institutions, with an investment of 1.4 million €.

Conferences and workshops.

Technical cooperation, including inter-regional and trans-national cooperation activities.

Main Activities

3. Innovation, Technology Transfer and Advising

Page 8: Esteban Baeza

These are technological packages that involve training, experimentation, technology demonstration, communication, and advice for solving specific problems of the productive sectors.

They produce contents and services for our Knowledge Management Platform, as well as training materials over the Internet.

10 transfer projects (TransForma Projects)

with an investment of € 1.2 Mio [ERDF and

ESF].

How does IFAPA contribute to innovation?
