The Final Conference will take place in Brussels 19-20 May 2015
Location: University Foundation, Egmontstraat 11, rue d’Egmont - 1000 Brussels
The aim of the final conference will be to present and discuss findings from the project with a wider audience, thereby marking the official end of the project. Based on the conceptual framework for assessing AKIS, the project compiled an inventory of AKIS institutions and interactions in the EU-27 as a searchable database and detailed reports. Using selected case studies, it has investigated specific knowledge systems through comparative analysis and assessments revealing successes, strengths and weaknesses which are currently discussed in three synthesis seminars. Based on these findings, policy recommendations for strengthening European agricultural innovation systems are presently being developed.
