The Stavros Niarchos Foundation, a leading international philanthropic organization, has awarded Rutgers a landmark grant of nearly $27.5 million. It will support a major initiative to help revitalize one of Greece’s most critical sectors—agriculture—by training and developing a new generation of farmers and inspiring agriculture and food entrepreneurs. Rutgers University–New Brunswick will lead the three-year project—Recharging the Youth: New Agriculture for a New Generation—through the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and in partnership with the Agricultural University of Athens and American Farm School. The interdisciplinary team will strive to create job opportunities for youth in agriculture, which is Greece’s second-largest employer, by preparing young workers for jobs at food-related businesses and family farms and by helping them start their own businesses. The Niarchos Foundation sought Rutgers’ involvement because of its broad base of programs with the components needed to empower youth and recharge the agricultural and food sectors: youth-engagement programs, business incubators, new farmer training, extension services that support agriculture, and business support for entrepreneurs. This grant is part of the Niarchos Foundation’s ongoing efforts to invest in global universities that collaborate with Greek universities, regional authorities, local communities, and industry to make an impact in Greece. The program will begin working with Greece’s established infrastructure in food and agriculture by developing training programs, identifying the program’s beneficiaries, providing mentoring and business-training support, creating a food innovation center and farm incubator, and providing innovation support.
