For policy makers

FLINT (Farm-Level Indicators for New Topics in policy evaluation) will provide an updated data-infrastructure needed by policy makers to support the implementation of relevant strategies, policies and legislation in the Europe 2020 strategy. Better targeting of policies will be facilitated by taking into account the performance of farms on a wide range of relevant topics and will explicitly consider the heterogeneity of the farming sector in the EU and its member states. By that it will greatly improve the targeting efficiency of the policy measures from an economic, environmental and societal point of view.
