The American Farm School and Perrotis College participate in nationally funded programs under the auspices of Greek ministries and agencies, whose objectives are the enhancement and development of the national economy. In cooperation with public agencies and private enterprises we design, plan and implement projects and activities for the agrofood and tourism sectors.

NSRF 2014 – 2020
The NSRF (National Strategic Reference Framework) 2014 – 2020 constitutes the reference document for the allocation of European Union Funds on a national level for the 2014–2020 period. The NSRF vises the bolstering of the Greek economy, restoration and improvement of the productive and social environment of the country, and the creation and maintenance of sustainable employment.
The SPMO endeavors to identify funding sources for the design and implementation of projects concerning both research and its application in the agrofood and tourism sectors. These sources may be national public funding (NSRF, RDP, etc. GSRT), European funding (INTERREG, MED, LIFE, HORIZON 2020, etc.), or funding through Greek foundations and enterprises. In each case, our primary objective is to design and implement actions to strengthen the Greek economy and the agrofood sectors, by helping to develop competitive advantages in the market.
