SCAR - Standing Commitee on Agricultural Research

The Standing Committee on Agricultural Research (SCAR) was established in 1974 and it is formed by representatives of 37 countries. It became a source of advice on European agricultural and wider bioeconomy research, and a catalyst for the coordination of national research programmes. The Committee is responsible for coupling research and innovation and removing barriers to innovation and aims to make it easier for public-public and public-private sectors to work together in delivering innovation that tackles the challenges faced in the bioeconomy area.
