Since 2016 IAK Agrar Consulting – together with its partners DEULA-Nienburg and AFC Agriculture & Finance Consultants – has been implementing the cooperation project “Setup of a German-Ukrainian agricultural demonstration and training centre (ADTC)” financed by the German Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL). ADTC LLC is a company under Ukrainian law and the basis for securing the maintenance and continued existence of this centre once funding by BMEL has ended.
The aim of the project is to set up a training centre for professional and managerial staff and for vocational school teachers, students and other personnel from the Ukrainian agricultural sector. Thanks to a demonstration area of 46 hectares at the Doslidnytske location (70 km south of Kiev) and equipment provided by the business partners, the training courses can be tailored to practical needs. ADTC LLC is already now responsible for important accounting matters and will gradually take over and continue the work of this project.
Starting in 2017, ADTC LLC – in cooperation with IFWexpo – will organise an annual field day every June, in addition to the project’s field day in September.
