External Focus Groups

Rationale of use

External focus groups are used to review the SWOT analysis in a scientific context, considering EU directives, national policies, and the green deal paper. These discussions validate intervention designs, particularly on agri-environmental measures.


These discussion groups scrutinise the intervention designs under a scientific lens, with a focus on agri-environmental measures.

Types of outputs

The outputs include detailed discussion notes that provide a basis for supporting interventions and setting targets in agri-environmental measures.
