About the project

The purpose of SUFISA is to identify sustainable practices and policies in the agricultural, fish and food sectors that support the sustainability of primary producers in a context of multi-dimensionsal policy requirements, market uncertainties and globalization. The implementation of the SUFISA project is based on close cooperation of researchers with producers, institutions creating relevant policies and representatives of governmental and non-governmental organizations - including international ones. Linking the theoretical analyzes and the participation of diverse stakeholders is a prerequisite for identifying the policies and operations aimed at counteracting negative results of market functioning - to ensure sustainable activity of farmers and fishermen. The project received financing from the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Program.

The national coordinator of the project in Poland is dr hab. Piotr Nowak from the Institute of Sociology of the Jagiellonian University. Team members at the Jagiellonian University: prof. dr hab. Krzysztof Gorlach, dr hab. Piotr Nowak, dr Anna Witowska-Jastrzębiec, mgr Adam Dąbrowski
