The LIAISON (Linking Actors, Instruments and Policies through Networks) project aims to make a significant and meaningful contribution to optimising interactive innovation project approaches and the delivery of EU policies to speed up innovation in agriculture, forestry and rural areas.
Better Rural Innovation: Linking Actors, Instruments and Policies through Networks
Funded through the EU Horizon 2020 program, the three-year LIAISON project will produce practice-ready methods and tools for optimising the use of the interactive innovation approach in projects funded within the framework of the EIP-AGRI – and beyond.
LIASON involves a wide range of researchers, policy advisors, actors from interactive innovation projects, initiatives and networks, farm/forestry advisors, decision makers across the EU to investigate the design and implementation of interactive project approaches.
Key outputs will include:
- A series of in-depth, hands-on ‘How To’ Guides for fostering co-creation and co-learning when working with interactive innovation projects (e.g. innovation support services)
- Policy Briefs on improving the institutional environment for interactive innovation projects (e.g. for RDP Managing Authorities) implementing the EIP-AGRI at national / regional level
- Videos and other communication materials presenting good practices in the planning and implementation of interactive innovation projects
All of the above – and more – will be made available through a web-based Interactive Innovation Tool Box.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 773418.
