According to estimates by experts world population would reach a
staggering 9 billion in the next 40 years and food demand would increase by 50%
much before that by year 2030. The strain on land as a resource on account of
good portions of cultivable land being taken up to provide living space and
shelter to the swelling population would only compound the problem. Given the
bleak scenario the formation of the EU joint Programming Initiative (JPI) on
agriculture could not have come a day later.
The JPI constitutes 20 European countries which work together and
synergise their efforts and knowledge in defining, developing and implementing
a common strategy to address all issues that concern the well being of its
citizens. It would help in strengthening research collaboration and coordinate
effort to avoid duplication and make the best use of the national funding of
EUR 1 billion Marks made available per year for the initiative. The JPI will
eliminate fragmented research efforts that could pull in opposite directions
and bring about a coherent and coordinated research initiative which would play
a crucial role in the European 2020 strategy.
The fact that less than 15% of civil research is currently coordinated
at the European level and the EU budget covers only 5% of public research
funding is not something to be happy about and it is this anomaly that the EU
Commission plans to correct. The JPI will not only try to find means for a
stable, safe and sustainable food supply but will also tackle the impact that
climate change has on agriculture. The JPI is led by the National Institute for
Agricultural Research (INEA) in France and the Biotechnology and Biological
Research Council (BBSRC) in the UK other member nations being Austria, the
Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, …

2. The lease:
Make sure you read the lease
carefully, don’t just leave it up to your lawyer to do this, you must make and
effort here and anything you don’t understand, make a note and when consulting
your lawyer bring these points up.

years long, 15 would be preferred, and then you have something to sell to the
next person buying a caf?.

The desire for a successful online
business is achieved only when you are able to incorporate definite
improvements in the website. Primarily, the website should have a great
content, SEO friendly url structure, proper utilization of meta tags, appealing
layout and fast loading speed with easy navigation system for the visitor. If
you provide value added service or products through your website, proper online
marketing is necessary. It would help the website achieve high rankings in
search engines to get the advantage of numerous visitors, who may turn into
potential customers through the conversion technique.
You need to understand the
fundamentals of SEO so that your website ranks higher in search engines in an
effective manner. Creating an efficient website is the task of an expert.
However, you should know that search engines are able to identify text through
HTML code and are not able to scan images though they make the website
attractive to visitors. You should, therefore, favor appropriate text value
than using fascinating images in making the website. If you use images, do not
forget to use alt tag.
