Holders of innovative agricultural ideas in Tunisia could apply for financial support from the Agricultural Innovation Fund of the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ).
Three winners could receive up to €50,000, or about 157 thousand dinars, from this fund, which promotes efficiency and sustainability in agriculture, according to the German agency.
Applicants, among start-ups and small businesses, from more than thirty countries in Africa, including Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco, will be able to benefit from this support for agricultural innovation.
They will be able to present, before March 31, innovations that “aim to make the agricultural and food sector more efficient and sustainable,” it was noted, specifying that the sectors concerned are mechanization, digitization and renewable energies.
The three winners in each category will receive a support package that will be individually tailored to their innovation for a total value of up to €50,000 (about 157 thousand dinars).
The package for the second-place winners is worth up to €20,000 (about 63 thousand dinars) and those in third place up to €10,000 (about 31.4 thousand dinars).
