The A3S is one of the partner organizations in the Project ” Bridges project between family agriculture and organic farming”, promoted by Instituto Superior Politécnico de Viseu,  from January 2017 until December 2018.

This project aims to analyze the practices of organic farming in family agriculture, with identification of constraints to its adoption. The promotion of organic farming practices among family farmers and the final disclosure of public policy recommendations are two of the guiding principles of this research for action. A3S is responsible of the organization of focus groups with key stakeholders to: (i) validate questionnaire surveys to be applied to identified farmers; (ii) define strategies for training and dissemination of organic farming principles; and (iii) policy recommendation.
