About project

“LEAN” stands for Learning on Entrepreneurship & Agriculture for New farmers. LEAN also refers to the concept of Lean management, or Lean thinking, that aims to continuously improve work processes, purposes and people.

The LEAN project is a transnational research project supported by the European Commission and funding bodies in five countries under the umbrella of ERASMUS+.

Aim of the LEAN project is to provide tailored training and capacity building to new entrant farmers to help them implement and develop their farm according to organic and sustainable agriculture principles.

Using ICT, LEAN is providing high quality learning opportunities to new entrant farmers. It also promotes exchange through concrete examples of good practices and “success stories” from European farmers.
