European knowledge repository for best agricultural practices

EUREKA has brought together 21 multi-actors (MA) from 16 member states and 48 supporting organizations, to co-create a stronger and reinforced EU wide agricultural knowledge base by developing an open source e-platform, called the FarmBook. This platform will address the needs and improve the connections between two distinct user groups: MA project partners and MA end users (farmers, foresters, advisors, scientists, policy makers,…).

EUREKA will first analyze the MA project knowledge supply (outputs, activities, dissemination, …). From this analysis best practices and recommendations will be formulated into a MA bible for the current MA community and for EIP-AGRI (+ SWG SCAR AKIS) to improve the design of future MA projects.

EUREKA will analyze the knowledge demand from potential end users, profiling them and determining their needs, barriers and preferences across four macro-regions in Europe.

EUREKA will integrate the results of the analysis on the knowledge supply & demand by consulting various expert working groups to co-create a ranking of MA projects and to select the most relevant and high impact agricultural MA project knowledge for the rural and scientific community.

The FarmBook will be built to present this knowledge in an accessible, standardsbased, easily searchable and open source way.

The FarmBook will be optimized in several iterations with end-user feedback and will be promoted to end users and the MA project community across Europe.
