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 European Union (EU) policies to speed up innovation in agriculture, forestry and rural areas.

Better Rural Innovation: Linking Actors, Instruments and Policies through Networks

In the 42-month project, a wide range of researchers, policy advisors, actors from interactive innovation projects, initiatives and networks, farm/forestry advisors and decision makers from across the EU are reviewing 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 the above – and more – will be made available through a web-based Interactive Innovation Tool Box. Find out more about the project here
