AgriSpin project ends: final recommendations & lessons learned
The AgriSpin project aimed at creating space for agricultural innovations through amplifying good examples of innovation support systems. The project tried to achieve this aim by exploring a number of selected innovation cases during 13 cross-visits in the project partners’ countries. The lessons learned in the project and innovation cases studied are now available online.
IFOAM EU was a partner in the project and has compiled an overview of the cases with an organic and agroecological focus explored throughout the cross-visits. These cases included examples of process, technological, governance, and socio-economic innovation in various EU countries carried out by organic farmers, processors, companies, cooperatives and often with a support of local governments.
The list and description of other cases that were part of cross-visits is available in the synthesis report. The tools used in the cross-visits as well as ideas on how to kick start, support and carry out innovation in agriculture are outlined in this inspirational guide. A more detailed analysis on the innovation support practices used in the cases is available online.
AgriSpin is a multi-actor project that received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 652642. The goal of the partners has been to identify and recommend best fit practices for innovationprocesses and innovation support services. For more info about AgriSpin project, visit www.agrispin.eu
