Strengthening agricultural knowledge and innovation systems

Primary producers have a particular need for impartial and tailored advice on sustainable management choices

Knowledge and Innovation Systems are key drivers to enhance co-creation and thus speed up innovation and the take-up of results needed to achieve the Green Deal objectives and targets.

This will include promoting interactive innovation and co-ownership of results by users, as well as strengthening synergies with other EU Funds in particular the CAP, reinforcing the multi-actor approach and setting up structural networking within national/regional/local AKISs.

AKIS goes beyond agriculture, farming and rural activities and covers all food and bio-based systems including transformation and distribution chains up until the consumer.
