A state organizational unit directly subordinate to the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development. It collaborates with agricultural advisory centres, governmental and local administration institutions, industry organizations, scientific research institutions, as well as other organizations and institutions working towards rural and agricultural development. The centre aims to improve the skills of agricultural advisors, teachers in agricultural schools, and representatives of institutions, organizations, and local governments. It achieves this by organizing training sessions, seminars, and conferences. The Centre also establishes a national network for agricultural innovation and promotes the latest scientific achievements, supporting the development of agriculture and rural areas, as well as agroecology and permaculture. A testament to this is a series of educational textbooks on permaculture developed in collaboration with our foundation.
