IFSA Workshop: Boosting research outputs: novel approaches for integrating research translation with interactive co-innovation
To be held at Harper Adams University, UK, 12th - 15th July 2015



The need to translate agricultural and forestry research outputs into practice is widely recognised. The challenge is to boost innovation by improving access to new information and enabling knowledge exchange between researchers and practitioners with a view to integrating new research into field practices. We are inviting papers that discuss knowledge exchange in the context of sustainable agriculture, including new integrative approaches to facilitate translation of research outputs into practice. The workshop will also include a demonstration of the “ask-Valerie.eu” search and stakeholder engagement tool.

The workshop (convened by VALERIE project partners) will be held at the 12th European IFSA Symposium: Social and technological transformation of farming systems: Diverging and converging pathways. Harper Adams University, UK from Tuesday 12th - Friday 15th July 2016.

The closing date for submission of abstracts is Monday 21st December 2015.
