The meeting, lasted a day and a half, and it was made up of various informative and demonstrative activities, such as the presentation on the European Innovation Associations, the establishment of a space to explain  and to dialogue with the participating Focus Group, and the visit to different field experiences to show innovative projects grouped in four lines: irrigation techniques and technologies, water quality, water reuse and efficient use of water resources. As part of the field visits, projects have been visited at the IFAPA of 'La Mojonera' and the experimental farm of the Cajamar Foundation. 

During the second day, the group was divided by thematic areas into working groups to identify the main challenges of the sector, which allowed the joint search for solutions that have forested interaction and the exchange of experiences among the participants.
