Descrição:

PRO AKIS aimed to fill this knowledge gap and to answer the question: How and from what sources can farmers get reliable and relevant knowledge, orientation and support to continuously evolve, to successfully solve problems and to respond to external expectations and development opportunities? PRO AKIS had the following objectives: 1) Develop a conceptual framework for the assessment of AKIS; 2) Provide an inventory of the AKIS institutions & interactions in the EU-27 as a searchable database; 3) Using case studies, investigate challenges around: small-scale farmers’ access to relevant & reliable knowledge, bridging scientific research topics & farmers’ demands, offering appropriate support for diverse rural actors that form networks around innovations in agriculture & rural areas; 4) Reveal successes, strengths & weaknesses of the specific knowledge systems through comparative analyses & assessments of these case studies; 5) Develop policy recommendations for strengthening European agricultural innovation systems.
