In the new EQA offices, the European Training Cooperative launched a project for farmers and veterinarians on 16 October 2017. The project of cross-border cooperation between Westphalian and Dutch partners within the INTERREG project FOOD2020 will carry out a feasibility study for a tailor-made learning concept for farmers and veterinarians by the end of March 2018.
