PAYMENTS

Funding for this Programme comes through a European Innovation Partnership initiative.

Innovation Partnerships (EIPs) are a new approach to EU research and innovation. EIPs are challenge-driven, focusing on societal benefits and a rapid modernisation of the associated sectors and markets. The Hen Harrier Project is funded through EIP-AGRI (https://ec.europa.eu/eip/agriculture/).

NOTE: EIP payments cannot be made on a per hectare basis.

There are three ways to be paid through the Hen Harrier Programme:

CONVERTING VALUE TO POINTS

The earned points a farm accumulates depends on the scores for each field.

The field scores in this example are displayed in the figure (left). This is the calculated as follows-

Earned points per field = Potential Habitat Points x(Field Score/10).

Fields that score 3 or less receive 0 points.

For this example farm the total Actual Points is 612.

CONVERTING POINTS TO PAYMENTS

The payment is then calculated using the values in the table (left)

612 points x €2 = €1,224

If all scores increased by 1 in year 2 this farm would receive 869 points.

869 points *€2 = €1,738.

If all fields scored 10 this farm would receive a maximum of 1,399 points: 1,000 points x €2 + 399 points x €1.50 = €2,598.50

2. Supporting Actions Payment

From year 2 supporting actions payments may also be claimed annually.

For this 23 ha farm that would be a maximum of €920.
